Default Re: Daughter with 40 degree curve

Hi, my daughter had her operation in2011. She has a connective tissue disorder called Marfans so a brace was not going to have any effect on her scoliosis.
If your daughter doesn't have a connective tissue disorder I think it's well worth seeking ways to to holt, slow down or support the scoliosis. From what I know there are many variations, causes, growth rate, degrees, etc of scoliosis, so it's an individual thing as to what will work or not.
With all the growth and hormones in puberty, its common for scoliosis to suddenly develop.
