    Hours in brace, percent correction in brace, Risser, etc. etc.

    Everything is confounding everything. Despite doing their best, it's still a train wreck.

    And then consider the BrAIST study where they COUNTED a 49* curve with up to 25% growth remaining a "success". And they were allowed to omit mention of the ending range of curves. While these...

    I don't think known cases of EOS get labeled AIS when the child reaches 10 yo. I think it remains a EOS case. Or at least I have never read that in all the reading I have done. I could be wrong.

    It strains credulity that these anecdotes you are picking up like you stated you were doing are all accompanied by dated radiographs, including very recent ones, expertly measured.

    Without dated radiographs expertly analyzed, you are likely to get solid nonsense when asking folk what's going on.

    If the metal is entirely within the body I don't understand how it can ever be colder than the body.

    Maybe Linda knows.

    Do you mean that the metal can get colder than your body in response to outside temperature? I think that is impossible. It will be the same temperature as your body after it has been there for a...

    I asked our orthotist how many braces he made. He said about 300. I then asked him how many patients went on to surgery. He said 2. After that first visit and a subsequent one, we never returned....

    What is your point?



    You sound like a conspiracy theorist here. You have it exactly backwards. Experts say it because they are not seeing high quality studies with large populations whose...

    We know that PT alone can reduce curves though not permanently. Martha Hawes is an example. Unfortunately she appears to be perhaps the only example. She exercised for hours each day. I think the...

    As far as I can tell, all three of those studies involved PT. I wonder if these small groups were the ones who continued PT after the brace came off.

    Well I don't think I stated it that way. I try to be extremely careful about these things and probably said it has not been shown to date. That is different from impossible.

    48 patients hand selected out of how many treated? Thousands? Are they doing continued PT? Is there something unusual about this small group? Late-diagnosed EOS?
