    Can you explain your statement about the casting and the Spinecor brace? I'm especially interested in your experience since your daughter's curve seems similar to Jack's :)

    Yes - he had a cast made for his brace. We were told it would only stabilize, not correct. I'm just curious as to how a cast corrects but a brace doesn't...

    I've tried to join the yahoogroup now for over two weeks and haven't been approved yet. It's rather frustrating when I really need input before we see him and the other doctors.

    I agree - that's the questions we had. We had read about both forms, extensively, and when his MRI came back clean we thought/hoped perhaps it was idio. So, we'll see. I definitely want to press...
