    If you have stopped growing, a brace will not help. You need to get your wrist xrayed to see if that has closed to know if you are finished growing. My daughter had finished growing at 13 and a doctor said she needed a brace without checking to see if she was still growing. Having had scoliosis since I was a teen, I knew to take her to another doctor who would check to see if she had stopped growing. She exercised and danced, but her curve kept growing and needed surgery.
