Answer

See the list below:

  • Patients with Scheuermann's disease most commonly are treated successfully on an outpatient basis. Conservative measures may include rest, NSAIDs, bracing, and physical therapy. See Rehabilitation Program for more information. The physician should schedule regular follow-up visits over the course of treatment to monitor progress and modify the plan of care when necessary.
