kyphosis and type of bracing
My daughter is nearly 12. When we first visited a doctor was at the age of 6 for scoliosis right thoracic 20 degrees. X-rays were taken every year and without doing any treatment now she has no scoliosis, just a slight curve to the lumbar spine. But at that time the doctor had not say anything about her kyphosis that was 70 degrees. At age of 10 we visited another doctor who first said about kyphosis. He said we had just to watch out her growth. Now he says she has to get into treatment with bracing. Her growth hasn't finished. He says she is in 0 rate of risser line (0-4 is the rate). Because she is an athlete, a basketball player, our doctor recommended the spinecor brace. She has 67 degrees kyphosis, Scheuermann's disease. My question is: does this type of bracing can slow or stop the curve's progression? I am from Greece and 99% of doctors use the old types of bracing such as boston etc. When I heard about spinecor I thought this is a good type of bracing for many reasons. But I need more information. Thank you.
