My 15yo got out of her Boston brace after one year back in April. She had her 6 month checkup a few days ago. Originally, her curves were 18 upper and 26 lower. Now her curves are 21 upper and 16 lower. The doctor was pleased and said that the bottom curve will probably settle out at 21 degrees like the upper curve.

Now she gets to go 12 whole months before returning to the ortho. She hasn't had that long between appts since she was 10yo.

Of course, now I need to start up my 10yo. My 13yo managed to escape scoliosis, but my other two got it from me.

Hi, so what age did your 15yo get diagnosed and start wearing her brace? My 6 yo has worn hers for 1 year. We go every 6 months for check ups. The dr. is always reminding me that surgery is inevitable. Just wondering what age your 15yo started the whole process. Congrats on no surgery!
