    Thanks, mamandcrm. I put in a request for an appointment. It would certainly be a lot closer than driving to Baltimore.

    Bracing and X-rays

    I'm curious about what others have experienced. My DD goes to Johns Hopkins every six months for an x-ray. She's only out of her brace for the actual x-ray. Would it be more accurate to have an...

    My daughter will loosen the bottom strap of her RSC brace after a larger than normal meal (like Thanksgiving or dinner out at a restaurant) for a little while. But it's not a routine issue for her.

    Oh, I didn't mean he intentionally overcharged you! This was what the itemized breakout was:

    Do you have your itemized bill from Orthotic Solutions? Double check that you were only charged for two if that's all you received. I would think they'd be pretty standard in what they hand out....

    This is an interesting discussion. Based on what I know right now, if my daughter takes this test and has a low score I think we would continue with brace wear in the hopes that it would keep her...

    I wonder about this too. My daughter was 8* when first diagnosed. She was 25* a year later. Can't quite figure out what that would mean in terms of this article.

    Sure, I'll share them. She doesn't get seen again until May.

    She was diagnosed by a very sharp pediatrician at her 10 year old checkup with an Adams test. She sent my daughter for an x-ray...

    Would someone mind looking at my daughter's x-ray and telling me what her Lenke classification might be? I've tried to do it but I don't know that I'm getting it right.

    Thanks!
