AbstractThe SRS-22 questionnaire is specifically designed for the assessment of quality of life in spinal deformity patients. This study is the first to use it to assess the quality of life of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis patients under brace treatment and compares the results with an observational group matched by age and curve magnitude. Forty-six patients were enrolled into each group. Overall, it was found that patients under observation had a significantly better quality of life than braced patients. Specifically, the domains for function/activity and self-image were most affected. This effect was most apparent in those with a curve magnitude of under 20°. The scores did not improve significantly with the duration of brace wear, suggesting little adaptation. This study has implications for treatment, and more attention will need to be given to those with mild but progressive curves to help improve patients' understanding of their treatment and hence their compliance and satisfaction. © 2006 Springer-Verlag.
