  • Scoliosis History
    A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.
    What type of spinal curvature?
    Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
    Diagnosis Details
    At 16, my doctor noticed I had scoliosis at my physical. In about a month, we saw an orthopedist who put me in a boston brace. I have to wear it for about 1.5 to 2 years.
    What curve pattern?
    Single lumbar
    Curve Pattern Details
    Apparently the top of my spine is very straight, and the bottom is about 25-30 degrees. I think that from the back it looked like a backwards J. What suprised me most was how uneven my hips are. Also, that I'm 16 and (I think) Risser 0.
    Had surgery?
    No surgery
    Worn a brace?
    TLSO brace (eg Boston brace)
    Bracing Details
    I got my brace two weeks ago and have been weaning into it. We don't know if it is working yet, but I REALLY hate it. I've been wearing it, but I really want to throw it across the room and jump on it.
