    Hi Richard. I am so sorry you are dealing with so many issues. Your plate is very full and you are asking interesting questions.

    Do you have x-rays from before and after B12 shots?

    There is no consensus on having fusion in any case other than adolescents with large, progressive thoracic curves.

    Adults are really at sea on this. The point is to never beat yourself up over...

    You seem to be saying your actual curve magnitude isn't changing because you are fused but the PT is affecting your soft tissue such that you look less concave, yes? That is not crazy in my lay...

    I thought the way they tell if it is structural is how much it bends out, no? Did your surgeon do bending films?

    I think you will figure this out and be successful.

    I just tried and failed to find what the material is in that implant. I would have to pull more references.

    Maybe someone else knows.

    juveniles are a very small population. Maybe you mean adolescents? If so, we have decades of data on fusion. T fusions that stay above about T12 or L1 and that drive enough straightness in...

    I think there is evidence PT helps with pain.

    I don't think there is evidence that Schroth is better for pain than other PT modalities. I don't see how the cost can possibly be justified.
