View Full Version : after brace... what happens?

Is there a risk when you get your brace off that the degree will worsen? I can't afford that, and none of us want a curve to get worse anyway. Is there a way to ensure that your curve will stay the same (or even get better), any type of therapy or treatment?

i'm 15 and had spinal sergery for scoliosis last year and i now have been wearing a brace and have to wear it until september at least and my dr/surgeon has told me and my parents that even after the surgery he does susspect that when the brace is taken off that the curve will get a little worse but not much, but that may just be my curve, it may be different for different types of scoliosis! :)
