I am a 44 yr-old female that had a 66 degree thoracic curve and 3 degree lumbar curve. I have been in a Copes brace for about a year and a half now along with Chiropractic manipulation. It is definitely correcting the Scoliosis. When I was 16 yrs. old I wore a Milwaukee brace. At that time my curve was only 30 degrees. The Milwaukee brace did not correct anything. If you need any additional information e-mail me back.
