How long do you wear your brace? I wear mine about 18 hrs. a day.

My 14yo wears hers 20-23 hours/day. She usually wears it about 22 hours/day, but has occasional shorter days. She had an 18hour day on Friday. We had to be at the park for several hours and it was WAY TOO HOT for her to wear her brace there. That was the first day she'd ever had that was less than 20 hours.

She has only had it off for 20 minutes so far today and that was so the orthotist could replace the buckle that came off on Saturday. Even though her top buckle had come off, she still wore the brace until we could get it fixed. She'll have it off for about an hour later tonight when I take her to the gym for a workout.

I wear mine for about 22 hours a day but lately I have been forgetting to take it off so I wear it about 23 hours on average. ( I usually take it off at 7:00 PM and put it back on at 9:00 PM but if I delay it an hour I have to go to bed before I put it back on. )
