Default Re: Perth people

Hi guys,
My 15 year old son has recently been diagnosed with a 54 degree left curve which makes him slightly 'atypical' according to the Dr.
We went for casting of his brace on Wednesday this week...wow, what an experience that was..although the guys were absolutely fantastic!
He will need to wear the brace for 22 hours a day and I would love to chat with anyone else in the Perth area who has had a teenage boy go through this as I am feeling a little overwhelmed at the moment.
I thought we would be able to 'build him up' to wearing it for this long but have been told that we need to start at the 22 hours from the day he gets fitted. My son is managing to keep his spirits up but I know it's going to be an ongoing battle getting him to wear this brace every day.....any suggestions would be greatly appreciated
