Embrace the brace

Scoliosis treatment can be tough for teens. Wearing a back brace for hours a day is sometimes uncomfortable. A bulky brace may clash with your favorite clothes or restrict some activities. But bracing works for many patients and helps them avoid surgery. Boston Children’s patients and providers understand that so we’ve collected some great advice from teen patients and their care providers who want to help others learn to “embrace the brace.”
