Hi, Beth!  My 11 year old daughter was recently diagnosed with scoliosis and is
now wearing a back brace.  The brace goes from under her arms to her hips.  She
has to wear the brace 14-18 hours a day and will have to wear it for 3-4 years,
or until she stops growing.

Some good places to write for information are:

American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons
6300 N. River Road
Rosemont, IL 60018-4262
(1-800) 346-2267

National Scoliosis Foundation, Inc.
72 Mt. Auburn St.
Watertown, MA 02172
(617) 926-0390

Scoliosis Research Society
6300 N. River Road
Suite 727
Rosemont, IL 60018-4226
(708) 698-1627

The Scoliosis Association, Inc.
P.O. Box 811705
Boca Raton, FL 33481-1705
(1-800) 800-0669

I have written to all of these, but have only received information from the
National Scoliosis Foundation so far. It was very good information.  If you
have any more questions, let me know.
