Megan Wears a Soft Scoliosis Brace for Adults, So Can You

Megan is an extremely busy caterer.  Her specialty is weddings.  In a normal day, she has to bend down a lot, pick things up, and unload her van.  All of which involve twisting, bending, and other forms of movement.  She has to spend long hours on her feet.  She also has to wear a soft scoliosis brace for adults.  Megan has a mild curvature, but one that just needs a bit of bracing to correct it.  And hardly anyone knows she even has it on.

“What I like about my brace is that it’s pretty much invisible,.” Megan says, shrugging, “Most of the time, I even forget I have it on.”

When Megan got diagnosed with scoliosis, she was devastated.  She thought that she would have to wear what she called a “turtle-shell.”  And earlier scoliosis braces were like that.  While those sort of braces are still used here and there, they have largely been replaced with more sophisticated methods of scoliosis treatments.  When she saw what the brace actually was as opposed to what she was expecting, she was quite happy.  She only has a year or two of wearing her brace and she can take it off forever.  And Megan isn’t alone.  Let’s take a look at Randy.

Scoliosis Doesn’t Stop Randy Either

Randy is a carpenter  in Phoenix, Arizona for a large home builder.  He has to climb a lot, and have his arms up a lot as well.  Randy is good at what he does, and doesn’t let the fact that he has to wear a scoliosis brace stop him.

“I wear a scoliosis brace because I have to, not because I want to.  Luckily it doesn’t ever get in the way of me or my job,”  Randy says, “If it did, I would have a problem supporting my family.”

So remember, if you  have been diagnosed with scoliosis, it doesn’t mean your life has to change.  You can have the best of both worlds.  You can still work, play or do whatever you want even if you have to wear a scoliosis brace for adults.
