Hi,

I had to wear a brace from 7th to about 10/11th grade 23/7, then part time til I was about 17. My son has scoliosis, also possibly my daughter-she will see her dr. next week. What type of brace will you have?

hi my name's marlana. i'm a sophomore in high school, but found out about my scoliosis the summer before 5th grade. i wore a back brace for about a year and had spinal fusion the summer before 7th grade. i don't remember the degrees of my curves but i have an s-curve and they were like 60 and 30 degrees before my surgery, and i think they reduced the top curve to 20. if you wanna talk or have any questions, just let me know. i was lucky because i didnt have pain from my scoliosis until after the surgery. i hope you dont have to wear the brace. one of my friends sisters had scoliosis and it fixed itself so maybe that will happen to you

Hi! I am 17 and i wore a brace from the time i was 7 till i was 15...I really didnt mind it at all. if u get a boston brace, they are really low profile and u cant even see them under ur clothes (unless the clothes are tight) u could probably wear a skirt and sweater and no one would even notice! i hope u dont have to get one, but i really didnt have a hard time with the brace. lots of kids dont have to wear one full time either . talk to ur doc and the orthosis people too. they can help! :cool:
