    Hi All

    Please keep us all posted. I know it's a lot to take in but it's better to get the ball rolling now and do what you can for him.
    Best wishes

    Jen,

    Well, that is good that you were so observant and caught the scoliosis on your own. I am sorry that he has it though (((HUGS))).

    Once they determine if it is congenital or idiopathic then you can get a better idea of what kind of treatment to pursue (serial casting, Veptr etc.). My son is idiopathic, so I know more about the serial casting than the treatments for congenital scoli. But, if it turns out that it is idiopathic feel free to PM me and I will try to help you in any way that I can.
