To evaluate the effect of custom molded foot orthosis without heel lift in scoliosis patients who had different pelvic height caused by inequality of RCSPA (resting calcaneal stance position angle).
We retrospectively reviewed the medical data of all patients who had been prescribed custom molded foot orthosis without heel lift in our institution from 2005 to 2009 and chose 38 scoliosis patients with Cobb's angle (≥10o) and different pelvic height (≥5 mm) caused by inequality of RCSPA (≥2o). Radiologic findings of whole spine AP and RCSPA were measured pre and post treatment and compared.
Twenty two females and sixteen males were included in this study. Their mean age was 7.76±3.72 years. Their mean period of wearing orthosis was 14.11±3.25 months. Initial average Cobb's angle of 13.18±3.16o were reduced to 7.42±3.45o (p<0.001). Initial difference of height between right and left iliac crest of 0.87±0.26 cm reduced to 0.55±0.28 cm (p<0.01) and angle of pelvic inequality of 3.98±1.55o reduced to 2.54±1.27o (p<0.05). Initial difference of RCSPA between right and left of 3.69±1.54o decreased to 1.69±1.54o (p<0.01). Each parameter has significantly reduced 12 months after the wearing of the custom molded foot orthosis in scoliosis patients whose age was 9 or below, whose Cobb's angle at 15o or lower.
The custom molded foot orthosis without heel lift was effective for scoliosis patients, who had different pelvic height caused by inequality of RCSPA. (J Korean Acad Rehab Med 2010; 34: 66-73)
