Rant! Rant! Rant!My call was answered by a woman named Heather and she asked me all the information she could get about As's condition. She was calm and interested very different from reassuring and dismissive notes I have been getting where I am!
Rant! Rant! Rant!They have a 5 day one on one program (will 5 days be enough? In the book The Schroth Method they use to do therapy for 3 months!?!)
I had questions about bracing! Heck from 20 degrees in January we are now up to 28 degrees and its only July! In a few days As will turn 12 and then what? Growth spurt more curving! Waaaaah!!!
I wanted braces back in January! Even though the braces we saw at the first Rehab place that we went to was a big turn off!
It was premature to get a brace in January now what?
Heather handed the phone over to a Physical Therapist named Cindy. And her answer to my questions:
Yes get a brace!
She should have gotten a brace as we should be expecting agrowth spurt etc etc etc...
We should get an in brace x ray. If its a good fit, we should see a 50% reduction in her curve when wearing the brace.
There could be as high as a 5 degree error margin in when it comes to reading the x ray! WHAT!!!?? I am going to search for body brace for my As!
My dear husband does not like the thought of getting As a body brace! We have to brainstorm too!!!
