When I was 13 I was diagnosed with scoliosis. I was recommended by my mom's friend to use Spinecor instead of the regular hard brace. After, discussing the options with my parents I decided to go with Spinecor. As Spinecor is not available in Hong Kong, we travelled to Kuala Lumpur for treatment.
Looking back, I'm really glad that I made that decision. My doctor's cheerful personality, patience and guidance was crucial in easing my fears about scoliosis and worries about using the brace. Additionally, she made sure that I was able to master using the brace properly right from the beginning. When I first started using Spinecor, I was really scared that it would be very bulky, and everyone would know that I was wearing a brace. However, the brace fitted me very well, and I was able to wear the clothes that I wanted to wear while still wearing the brace.
The Spinecor brace provided the support that I needed while being very comfortable. At times, I had even forgotten that I was wearing it. Furthermore, I was able to easily participate in sports and other activities, and the brace did not hinder my performance in any of these activities at all.
I got off the brace when my bone reached maturity. Overall, I was very satisfied with the Spinecor brace, and I'm really glad that I chose it over other brace options.
