    Hi Peter...

    That's actually a relatively complex question. The answer would be based on the type and location of one's curve(s) and the skeletal age of the patient. In general, it's usually around 25 degrees.

    Regards,
    Linda

    I believe congenital(born with) scoliosis curves are ineffective to bracing. I never got to wear a brace even though i detected my scoliosis at a mere 12 degrees.
