Default Re: Daughter with 40 degree curve

Thanks for that information RB. This specialist will not be operating. We will have to see a surgeon in Sydney. We are having another x-ray in a month to see if there has been any progression. The specialist we saw said going by her curve and the position it is in (and that her trunk has shifted), that a brace would not help her and a curve like hers will continue to curve. I am not ready to take his word for it yet.

I am glad you mentioned the 50 degrees, as this was a question I had for the specialist. What I am unsure of is how do we know that a brace won't work and are we wasting time? Should we be trying a brace out? I will have a list of questions for the specialist when I see him in a months time.
