    Syd turned 11 this week and we are officially into the adolescent stage (maybe we have been in it already). The juvenile years have been good to us with bracing and some PT to reduce her 36T to...

    I have not posted for some time but one of my overall concerns is whether or not we are just delaying surgery with bracing.

    Understanding Braces

    Momo

    My daughter is 9, first diagnosed at 7 with a 23 degree curve. It was recommended to not brace, and just watch it. Very quickly, while still 7, it increased to 36 deg. So, bracing right...

    I am happy to hear about the in-brace correction. In brace correction is very important to get the curve to reduce over time. The greater the in-brace correction the greater the...

    Good advice from others - see a surgeon

    Elisa

    I agree with everyone telling you to see an orthopedic surgeon and that you should not follow the advice of others, like myself. However, with that said, you should use it as input into...
