So I was recently diagnosed (m-44), I have a 25-degree thoracic curve. My doc thinks I had it since childhood. I am less certain; the curve only became noticable around a year ago. I looked in to past xrays and it said 12 degrees 2 years ago. This all came up when I was getting ready for a microdiscectomy (he says they are unrelated).
Anyway, I'm curious what my options are, if, indeed my scoliosis is progressing. I know I am going to have a 6-month followup in a bit to measure me again. I definitely don't like the "wait and see" approach if it's moving. I am going to start PT for the microdiscectomy, should I go straight to a PT that deals with scoliosis? Has anyone had experience with the Scolisuit, or Schroth, or scolibrace? The braces seem to be a new thing and my doc says a brace is ineffective on adults anyway. I trust my doctor, but I also want to be pro-active if this thing is moving. Personally, it feels like the "watch and wait" approach with adults just means "wait until it's so bad they need to surgically repair it".
