It seems that every facility, every doctor has a brace they prefer.
My son is 20 months. We've done early intervention serial casting for the past 8 months and were informed that his spine is becoming too rigid and correction isn't being achieved.
He is in his fifth cast and I'm wondering if there is anything we can do to increase his flexibility while in a cast. If this cast doesn't get us any correction, we will move into a brace. His doctor recommended using a local orthotist for a Providence, and I called Shriner's and spoke with them at length about it. They said Providence doesn't work because there is no spine load and for a baby, you really need all-day bracing. I believe they recommended the milwaukee? I can't remember now.
I'd really appreciate any input on the type of brace and where we go from here. We are basically at a crossroad where can choose the physician based on the brace they recommend. Apparently, everyone has their own favorite, but Jack's curve is still in the 30s and I just know he's going to rebound.
