I always feel guilty when I take my brace off! I feel that if i take it off, my back might get worse. I guess your not the only one who feels guilty!

I used to think that my back would get bad when I took off my brace too!

But, I was at the shriners hospital and out of the brace 1 1/2 hrs. and My back hadn't curved anymore.(i mean it was 11 in the brace it was 11 after 1 1/2 hr. )

hope that helps,

im not sure why you feel guilty. if you take it off just for a little bit, it's not going to permently hurt anything. The purpose of the brace is to try to correct your spine as it grows over long term. However, i dont reccomend taking it off all the time, for surgery is nothing fun to expierence. you should be ok to take it off to swim or something. Why do you need to take it off other than that? Just wondering so i may comment more. Regards, Derek
