I am new at this forum. I am 18 years old and I am living in Germany.( Please Excuse my spelling mistakes, but my English isn`t the best)
My scoliosis was discoverd when I was 15 years old. I had 24 and i got a back brace. The Problem was that the brace didn`t work, it was really rubbish. 2 month later I already had 33 :eek: and I got a new brace. This one corrected my scoliosis to 0. Now I have already my 4th brace and I am doing since 2 years Schroth exercises. Last year I had a x-ray controll and after two weeks without the brace I only had 19 left. In July I will have another controll and when my curvater is around 10 or less I can start taking off the brace slowly.

Welcome! It sounds like your brace has been doing a good job. It must feel good to know that you are almost finished with bracing. Thanks for posting, I think it will help other teenagers who are only starting to wear their braces to see others who have had success and are nearly finished.
