Individual patients radiographic results. A. Starting data (Cobb degrees) of the patients included in this study. B. Final radiographic results (Cobb degrees) of each single patient included in the study. C. Results of brace treatment in all patients included in the study: 2 patients worsened, 18 improved. The blue lines represent the SRS inclusion criteria (from 25 to 40 Cobb degrees), while the red ones report the final SRS end-point not to be reached at the end of treatment (45 Cobb degrees). The maroon lines indicate the ± 5 Cobb degrees that represents the significant limit to achieve a clinical change in single patients.
