    No I didn't know she is an actress. I know she does "mudders" which impressed the heck out of me.

    Are you sure both curves are structural? There was a woman...

    That is generally true for the most part but there have been a few studies of what happens if the rods are removed. There is some loss of correction, mainly in the transverse plane (rotation) if I...

    Physical therapy seems to work in some cases for pain but has never been rigorously shown to stop progression permanently. Because some curves stop on their own even at a high degree of curvature,...

    I hope others reply also but here is what I think is the case.



    I suspect every case is different so there may be no answer to this question. All you can do is pick an experienced surgeon. ...

    Rods break because the fusion did not happen either in time before fatigue built up in the rod or at all. I think it is relatively rare in kids. I suspect virtually all cases are in adults.

    Can you give us your feel for the numbers?

    If they do a discectomy they need to fuse the vertebra, no? I thought the point was to avoid fusion.

    Thanks for this, Burdle. Can you post the FB page for people who want more information? I would have to search for it.

    When you say quite a few, how many do you mean?

    Now imagine a person who either got NO training in scoliosis or the training was...
