HOW WILL THIS TREATMENT AFFECT MY QUALITY OF LIFE?

The Cobb angle is not the only factor involved in scoliosis treatment; indeed, it is not even the most important. In a recent survey of scoliosis experts and patients, Cobb angle was not even in the top ten most important factors to consider when working with scoliosis. Much more important is how the treatment will affect your physical and emotional well-being – what doctors refer to as your health-related quality of life. If bracing were 100% guaranteed to prevent scoliosis from getting worse, some teenagers might still not consider it worth the social anxiety and isolation caused by wearing a brace around their friends and peers in high school. If the goal of treatment is to prevent problems from developing down the road, but the treatment causes problems to develop right now, the trade-off might not be worth it for some people.

Many people living with scoliosis are concerned about their appearance, posture, and the symmetry of their bodies – not every treatment method can improve these factors. If it is important to you, make sure your doctor knows it, and your chosen treatment method can help you with it.
