Dear Lori, Thanks for your reply. My 13 yr. old has a 30 degree from T 11 to L 4 and a compensatory curve at T 5 to T12. She wears her Boston brace 20 hours a day, even to school, which has been hard. However she is terrified of surgery which has made her compliance better. We have done a great deal of research and are getting her fitted with a Spincor brace. (check it out www.biorthex.com) which is dynamic rather than rigid and we hope will have even better results with less emmotional traumma. Please e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can compare notes. Thanks and good luck to your little one also!
