Does a person have to wear a brace all the time, or just at night? Or does it depend of the situation?
Also, if a person's back is hurting more, does that mean it's getting worse, or they're growing out of it?

Hi. Everybody is different. A doctor will tell you how many hours you need to wear your brace. Often, as your curve improves your hours out of the brace increases. As for back pain...wow...not a doctor...but my general advice would be that if you're hurting...you should tell someone and have it looked at. A sore back can be a lot of things from something like scoliosis to a bad mattress or the wrong chair at the computer!

Good luck.
