Slow Dangerous Curve: Scoliosis and Posture Screening Handbook. Revised Edition.
Tenney, Horace K., III; And Others
The yearly screening process to detect scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and poor posture in girls 10 to 14 and boys 13 to 14 is discussed. The purpose of the program is to detect deformities in their earliest stages to prevent progression. Photographs are interspersed with text on suggestions for planning the screening program, clothing, setting up the program, conducting the actual screening, and rescreening and followup. The involvement of the Bureau for Crippled Children is considered. Sample forms and letters are appended along with listings of references on scoliosis screening. (CL)
