This morning whiule searching for information about the Charleston Brace in response to a question from the fellow on the bracing forum, I came across an interesting Blog.

I did a search and I see I am not the first to have brought it to folks attantion, Chris WBS mentioned it about a year and a half ago.

This surgeon keeps a very active Blog, (over 300 posts in the last 2 years). Obviously I havent read all of it but the first post I came across was interesting
natural history of adolescent scoliosis where he talks about some of the research on the topic.

His main blog page is http://drlloydhey.blogspot.com/
You might consider bookmarking it.
and if anyone reads something particularly interesting perhaps you can bring it to folks attention and we can discuss it on this thread.
