Scoliosis & back braces, devices

Posted by jager5210 @jager5210, Wed, Aug 7 7:53am

I now have scoliosis due to osteopenia and too much time with bad posture at my computer. Is there a brace that can correct this?

Hello @jager5210. I'd like to invite @beryl, @polly38, @jamaz, @ldawn, @sharon2000, and @muffincat to help start this conversation as they have all discussed having scoliosis and may be able to share whether or not they have tried and braces or devices at any point in their scoliosis journey.

Here a few more scoliosis discussions you may find worth your time reading through or participating in:

@jager5210, if you don't mind me asking and if you are comfortable sharing, what sort of treatments or therapies have you tried in managing your scoliosis?

Mine is only mild scoliosis, as such, can still be a pain in the proverbial tho.
The person who actually identified it was the priest who jokingly told me he could hear me walking down the aisle for communion and noted that I had an unequal clomp, clunk [in those days we had those metal plates on our soles to make them last] and it was later confirmed by Xrays, etc
I was told by my physio to always try and walk straight upright, stand upright and when lying make sure the spine was as straight as it could be, so that my leg with the tilted pelvis being one inch shorter than the other wasnt allowed to become 2 inches.
I have no bend in the lower part of my spine now so its either tip at the hips or get down on the knees
