    The Katz 2006 study kind of mentions in-brace correction in passing. They were mainly looking at hours in brace and Risser score. They say they recorded in-brace correction but did not report it in...

    I can't find that Katz 2006 study no matter what I google. Found some by Katz, but not that one....

    Please jump in any time! I have appreciated your input in the past.


    From my review of the literature so far, it looks that it's all a huge grey area as far as progression after skeletal...

    I wouldn't call it an apples to oranges comparison - maybe apples of different flavors. While I am very interested in long-term outcomes for good reason, I am not just addressing post-treatment of...

    We've shared our kids images with anyone who has asked and quite a few have already. I don't remove the date from the image and neither do others. Some remove the name, but that's about it. If it...
  8. A literature review that I just found published in 2016

    Thankfully, radiographs do have dates on them. And the angle measures that the radiologists apply to the images are expert enough to draw some conclusions. Sure, it's not perfect evidence. But it...

    There are tons of threads/posts on this forum that discuss the ins and outs of scoliosis that are not specific to personal experiences. Everything I am posting at least indirectly to my kids, since...

    I'm not sure exactly what you mean. I have only posted things relating to my kid's experiences and my experiences in trying to give my kid's the best possible care I can find. Since I am a medical...
  12. AIS curve improvements holding stable 15 years later in this study

    In this recent study presented at SOSORT in 2017, AIS curve improvement is almost assumed and expected since the point of the study is to see how well the AIS curve improvements hold up over...

    Thanks for the information. I am hearing a lot of similar reports from parents that I am talking to.
  14. My point is that you said a few comments ago that...

    My point is that you said a few comments ago that you didn't exactly say that AIS curve reduction is impossible, but you did. I put up with a lot of condescension from you the last time around, but...
  15. I haven't run into kids/parents describing it...

    I haven't run into kids/parents describing it that way. I'm sure it's pretty uncomfortable initially, but more and more comfortable as the curves stretch out and become more stable. Our kids, 100%...

    I guess I don't consider bracing to be an alternative method, so I'm not following with what you are saying.

    They do where we go.
  18. If you don't mind my asking, what kind of brace...

    If you don't mind my asking, what kind of brace was used and where did you go? I can see why they were disappointed with the in-brace correction of only 30% or less. Of all the kids that I have got...

    Adult deformity specialists will see only those who are having problems after bracing attempts. They will have no first hand idea about those who were successfully braced. They can look at the same...

    This study still show that AIS curve correction is possible, even though they may be giving the impression that they did it more frequently than they really did. Even if it was being done rarely...

    Did you read the study? It appears that 73 AIS kids were treated at that clinic from 1994 to 2009. Of the 73, 48 met the inclusion criteria for the study. No clinic with one orthotist is going to...

    References are listed in my literature review. Yeah, I read all your chiro stuff. What you said could have truth to it, but I take each person, one at a time. I don't go with the theory that 100%...

    I'm just going to say that if looking for curve correction is not part of SRS research outcome criteria, then to me they are not up to date. You can disagree if you want. You have said yourself...

    The curves are in a wide range probably averaging moderate I would say. 25 degrees to beyond surgical range. They are AIS according to the studies. I referenced one study done by a highly skilled...
