I'm 18 and have a 68 degree curve, and my specalist has suggested we wait to see how fast my curve is progressing until I get surgery. I'm currently in a boston tlso brace that I got when I was 16, and I'm appointed to wear it 24 hrs a day and only really take it off when I shower. My curve makes me lean to the right a ton, which messes with my balance and it's hard to walk like that. Also, whenever I'm walking i get extreme pains that shoot through my lower spine and upper right back. I want to get a cane to support me when I walk and to keep my balance, but I don't know if it will work for the scoliosis pain. Does anyone have input on getting a cane?
