Tell Me a Story: Straightening Out Scoliosis

A mother's instinct told Courtney Strotman something was wrong with her baby. Her daughter, Addyson, was 4 weeks old when Courtney noticed the bump on her back. Courtney's husband, Brandon, tried to ease her fears, telling her it was just a muscle. But Courtney insisted it was something more. Five months later, doctors at Cincinnati Children's diagnosed Addyson with infantile scoliosis. An X-ray last November measured the curve in Addyson's spine at 26 degrees. Two months later, it had worsened to 42 degrees. The Strotmans' options were to do nothing and face the complications of spinal deformity, to put growing rods in Addyson's spine, or to try to correct the problem with a series of casts that their baby would wear for about a year. They decided on casting, a method that is quickly becoming the preferred treatment for early onset scoliosis. Orthopaedic surgeon Peter Sturm, MD, recently joined Cincinnati Children's and brought the Mehta casting technique to Cincinnati. "We can actually control curves and frequently get them better just with casting," Sturm says. "It's less invasive, and it works."
