    I had a harrington rod put in my back in 1980. In 2000, I had it removed because the screw (or whatever it is) at the top had come loose and it was causing me pain. The doctor who removed the rod...

    I get what you're saying. If my daughter gets through this without needing surgery, we won't know if it's because of the brace or not. I understand that. You've just brought up the JIS and I hadn't...

    Thanks for this. Your story is very interesting and it is helpful. One thing I've learned through all of this is that everyone is different. I was a late grower and a slow grower. I don't think I...

    I guess he's just using her x-rays as evidence. He is using my daughter as kind of a case study. They don't offer the LA brace here or any brace like it. If he likes the results, he is going to have...

    You might be right, but why wouldn't the doctor know that? He really thinks it's the brace. He has never said anything about JIS versis AIS. I intend on asking him at our next visit.

    Yes, her doctor was kind of speechless after her first x-ray wearing this brace. It's not a brace that he uses, so I think he was skeptical about it at first.

    Her curve was definitely more than...

    I think it's frustrating! And so terribly complicated! I guess I never considered her to be a JIV case because she didn't actually start wearing the brace until she was 11. Her doctor has been pretty...

    My daughter has a friend in her ballet class who also has scoliosis. She goes to the same doctor as we do and he ordered an MRI on her. The parents said it was because she was having pain and that...

    I think it is rare too, but my daughter's growth has been delayed almost all of her life, so it really wouldn't surprise me if she grew until then. I hope not for her sake. That would mean she would...

    Wow! Your daughter has an amazing in-brace correction! I don't think we've ever had that much of a in-brace correction.

    Yes, the LA brace is similar to the Cheneau brace. My daughter has worn this...

    Hi Tom,
    I will have to go back now and look at my daughter's first x-rays to see if she had hypokyphosis then. The first brace she wore, I've heard, can encourage the hypokyphosis. I didn't know...

    Well, then I'm glad that she is JIS and not AIS!! I think it will depend on when the doctors tell me she's finished growing. I think if she just sleeps in the brace, that might be okay, but I don't...

    She always has her brace off at least 24 hours before the x-ray. I didn't realize that a brace can improve curves in JIS, not in AIS. I do believe that she is still growing, even though she's almost...

    Yes, I found it when she was 7, although she didn't need the brace until she was about 11. I had surgery when I was 15, and there are several people on my mom's side who have it, so I checked her all...

    Thanks for your responses. My daughter just started menstruating about 10 months ago, right before she turned 15. We go to the doctor every 4 months for x-rays and she has grown each time. Not a lot,...

    Hypokyphosis

    Hello,
    My daughter has scoliosis and hypokyphosis. Her doctor says that her hypokyphosis is "remarkable" - I am thinking that he means that it is pretty bad. She has been wearing a brace for over 4...

    I had surgery in 1980 where they put a harriington rod in. I never was given the opportunity to wear a brace because my scoliosis wasn't found until it was 47 degrees. I remember being glad...

    Hi Dawn,
    Does your daughter wear a brace? My daughter is wearing the LA brace and will begin the Schroth exercises, but I've heard about the CLEAR and am curious about that as well.

    Thank you
