    Congratulations Kara! What a great accomplishment. :-)

    So apparently, perhaps the Japanese researchers in the study posted above may have found a more universal gene possibility than at least the Utah Scoliscore researchers. Interesting.

    Flerc,

    I'm sorry this forum has allowed people to be absolutely bullied and hounded off this site for over five years. My daughter was twelve and just diagnosed with scoliosis and had been...

  8. Weighing the Treatment Options for Scoliosis from the Wall Street Journal

    Here's a pretty good article regarding treatment options for AIS.

    Exactly who is wildly pro bracing? Or who loves it? It simply is. Just as many other medical treatments are.

    I have to say that many of the spine surgeons, including my daughter's and even my daughter's female dermatologist were engineering majors before they went to medical school.
  12. I didn't need to be told that the researchers...

    I didn't need to be told that the researchers tested both races. That is pretty obvious.

    I am more interested in the possibility that the genes discovered here in the United States weren't...

    Perhaps you'd like to explain why the study that Dingo listed makes a point to say that it's the first gene to be associated with scoliosis across Caucasian and Asian races. That's what I'm asking. ...

    This is very interesting. Were the potential scoliosis genes identified here in the United States only found in the race used by the researchers and not other races?

    I would look into it too if I was still involved in that stage of scoliosis management. I'd make sure that they're actually removing the rod system at the end of growth and not fusing the spine at...

    Hi,

    Wow, the brace you have your daughter in gets the correction of a nighttime brace and it's worn all day? That's very unusual. Is it extremely tight or do your daughter's bones just reshape...
