Welcome. You didn't say where you were from. But I recommend that if you have questions about the Spinecor, you call the orthopedics in Montreal directly. They invented the brace and there are not many orthopedics in the U.S. who know enough about it to prescribe it. You didn't say whether you live in the U.S.
You can read about my daughter in my signature. We chose the Spinecor over the hard brace because we didn't want our daughter in the hard brace because of its restrictions and negative side effects.
Good luck to you. I'm sure you will get more responses.
