God has used scoliosis to strengthen and mold us. He's good all the time!On this forum these larger curves have not held forever in Spinecor,with an initial positive response followed by deterioration. With deterioration, change treatment.The first year she gained 4 or 5 inches and was stable at around 20/20 in brace, followed by rapid progression the next year.She is now 51/40 (Jan2008)out of brace (40/30 in Spinecor) and started at 38/27 out of brace(Jan2006.) Now in Cheneau.

I just wanted to add that a few people have said that sleeping postions could/would affect a spine that is prone or pre-disposed to curving, if this is the case then what is it that makes certain peoples spines prone or pre-disposed????

I don't agree with the sleeping theory, either, but I think that the scoliosis happened to get like that over time. Mine is horrible. I have three curves in my back and the worst is in my middle back at 90 degrees. I can't have the surgery because of a lung condition I have. I have slept in all sorts of weird positions and they never caused my scoliosis to become as bad as it is. I hoep this information helps you some.
how...HOW..do they know...prove...that carryihng things on one side, like bag, backpack, etc, does not
contribute to scoli...HOW do they know for sure...have they interviewed enough people who did that
and DON'T have scoli...?
how do they prove these life style theories to be false....
cause they have not convinced me...no way....
i'm not saying sole cause...i am saying CONTRIBUTES....
