Thank you for your reply. The compliance is going to be hard, but he still is estimated to have 1- 1 1/2 years of spinal growth left, so I would think some type of bracing would be helpful. It seems that the kyphologic brace is used more in Europe but it seems so much less conspicuous that it is crazy not to try it if it is showing promise, right? Oh well. This is all so new to me and makes me sad for him.
Any other ideas or experts you all recommend would be appreciated.
