    question about x-rays

    We are new to scoliosis. I have just received the x-rays to transport to the orthotic group and looked at them. The doctor estimated about a 10 degree increase in the last 6 months.

    My question is this: could my daughter have been standing funny during the x-ray? She tends to stand with one knee bent and the other straight. Would this affect the x-ray?

    Yes, and yes. Be sure you bring it up with your daughter's doctor.

    update-We had our appt with the orthodist and after looking at the x-rays, he said that yes, it could affect the curve but he did not believe it was is our case. He also said to bring it up to our pediatrician/ortho if we were still concerned. I feel better now.

    He also said that he thinks my daughter stands this way BECAUSE of the scoliosis not the other way around.

    thanks for the input.
