However, we generally use ▬ Brace treatment the smaller Becker brace (⊡ Fig. While the kyphosis remains flexible and no radiographic changes are ap- parent, the patient is merely suffering from a postural abnormality rather than Scheuermann’s disease. It is more effective to manage postural abnormalities by encouraging the patient to practice some sporting activity than by expen- a b sive physiotherapy.
