Using a scoliometer can help justify referral to a pediatrician for follow up. Referral to an orthopedic specialist may be needed with larger readings. A positive finding is also great justification for ordering an x-ray for evaluation.
When you see a curve measuring 5 degrees or above on the Scoliometer, consider sending them for evaluation using our Formetric to further image the spine. This will help determine the 3D component of the curve and get a baseline. This can help determine if they would be appropriate for the Schroth Method.
