Bracing: Bracing is recommended to prevent the progression of the scoliotic curve. It is effective in growing children with a spinal curvature between 20° and 40°.
Your spine surgeon can discuss all aspects of the procedure, including risks and benefits, so that you and your child are well informed. If your child develops signs and symptoms suggestive of AIS, consult your doctor immediately. He/she is the most reliable resource to answer all your questions and help you understand the condition better.
