Default Anyone with experience of bracing?

Hi my daughter aged 13 has just been referred to the Stanmore under Mr Lehovsky, we are due to see him on 20th March. The doctor that referred her said that due to the increase in her curves ( last measured in December at 33 degrees) she will need to be braced within the next few months.
I wonder if anyone can offer any advice regards bracing and what to expect at her first appointment with Mr Lehovsky. Also if anyone can suggest questions that would be useful to ask at this appointment. My daughter stands very straight at the moment and her back muscles are pretty strong due to her training between 5 and 8 hours per week in gymnastics. Does anyone know if it will be ok for her to continue with this as she would be extremely upset if she had to give it up as a result.
Any help or advice would be great, thanks.
