    Back Pains

    Hi! Haley here. I just got a Boston brace on Friday, June 5th. My back has been hurting consistently. Is this normal? Any time I sit or lay down, it feels like I have a huge bruise and I'm putting pressure on it.
    Any tips to make this stop?

    Thanks!

    Haley

    Hi, my name is Valerie, but you can call me Val or V.
    I wore a Boston Brace from 2007-2010
    My curves were 30 and 31
    I now have only a single curve which stands at 35 degrees.
    I owe all of my blessings to The Lord!
    I am very thankful with where my spine is at right now.
    I want to meet some new people on this forum!
    Don't be shy...
    Feel free to message me if you would like to chat!

    Boston Braced Since March 26, 2009.
    2 thoracic curves: 28 and 22 degrees.
    1 lower lumbar curve: 14 degrees.

    One leg is longer than the other; pelvic tilt.
    Curves are reversing in my brace!
    Mother and sister with mild scoliosis,
    and treatment was not required.


    "I am uneven.
    2 Halves.
    1 body.
    A curve.
    So what?
    Mistakes.
    They lie.
    Within.
    My spine.
    I.
    Do not.
    Match up.
    Inside.
    And outside.
    I am uneven."

    Tell your brace person next time you go back, maybe it needs some adjusting.
    From what i heard Bsoton braces hurt and are uncomfortable!

    Have you looked into other braces? There is a soft boston (hard on the outside, and ahs a soft liner in the inside)
    and the newer braces TriaC (from the same company as hard Boston braces)
    and Spinecor.
    Good Luck

    Thanks everyone for the advice!
    My curves have improved a lot!
    I've had my brace almost a year now, and it's almost closed
    I'm Haley.
    I have been dancing for 10 years.
    I have taken gymnastics for 1 year.
    I was diagnosed with scoliosis December 19, 2008.
    I have had a boston brace for a little more
    than a month.
    I have no idea what my curves are. I will ask my mom later.

    I hope my brace works or else I will
    be really sad!!!!!
