Hello everyone!!

I'm a guy from malaysia and i'm now 18 years old.I got my brace since i was 15 and got pretty much used to it now(except some pain at the rib and skin irritation).My doctor asked me to learn swimming....is it gonna help my spine?

I remember the experience of wearing it the first time and it was so painful but somehow i endured it(thank god).I really hated scoliosis but i know i can't do anything about it :(

I really hope i can endure it till the end.Anyone has any good advice that i could use?

well, for starters, if you are 18, you are likely to have stopped growing. If that is the case you might want to discus with your doctor whether there is still any benefit in wearing it
