Hi Peter...

That's actually a relatively complex question. The answer would be based on the type and location of one's curve(s) and the skeletal age of the patient. In general, it's usually around 25 degrees.

I believe congenital(born with) scoliosis curves are ineffective to bracing. I never got to wear a brace even though i detected my scoliosis at a mere 12 degrees.
