So what made my husband and I decide to go for the therapy? The fact that our daughter's scoliosis is not life threatening although it is progressive, the solution available for her, which is surgery, is indeed life threatening. There is no such thing as risk free surgery and to have it at such a young age was not something we wanted to see happen to our daughter. Also, there is no such thing as 100% guarantee. So, we spent what we had in the hope of correcting a condition that seems to be going downhill for our 2nd child.
Here is a post I wrote last year on exactly the same day. And here is another post from last year about a week before they left for therapy.
There is hope for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis and I don't think its wait and see! I think its scoliosis specific therapy! Its far and it costs a lot, but so does a brace, and so does surgery. To say that my daughter has overcome her condition is premature and exaggerated. She still has a curved spine, and it might be something she has to deal for the rest of her life. She still has her brace and she still might need surgery, but as for now there is a ray of hope that she is working effectively away from it and towards a straighter spine.
