It is natural for your child to start asking how long they will have to wear a back brace for scoliosis, especially if they have to wear it almost all of the time. But the good news is that all of the dedication pays off, even if they outgrow more than one on their journey toward being finished with pediatric bracing forever.
Of course, they may go through more than one brace as their growth spurt hits. If your preteen or teen is being treated with a scoliosis brace in Arkansas or elsewhere, they probably already have a great health care team available to answer questions about timing — but there is much you can do to reassure them.
The technology used in orthotics today has advanced to an incredible degree. Not only is there a brace for every condition and situation, but you will find one that helps correct the adverse effects of your specific condition.
The two main varieties of back braces are the soft and hard (or rigid) types. Given the number of conditions for which back braces are used, there are sub-categories within these two broad types of back brace. Each one has specific benefits for those needing a custom back brace in Arkansas.
