I was first diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 13. My chiropractor introduced and suggested me to try on SpineCor soft bracing. At first, the thought of having braces makes me worried as I thought it would limit my daily activities and routine. I thought wearing braces would separate me from my favorite sports like badminton but after wearing it for a while, my perspective changed. The brace is really flexible which did not limit me from doing anything.
I was in the afternoon session in my secondary school that time, and as you know, Malaysia is a hot country all year round. Wearing the brace makes me really uncomfortable, as I get sweaty and sticky, especially when I have sports in the morning in school before classes. The bands would rub against my skin making it to peel off due to the friction. So I started using powder with helps to minimise the friction and helps to dry my skin when I’m sweaty and sticky. As time goes by, I have gotten used to the brace. It helps to strengthen my posture and spine as well as prevent it from developing worse.
Now I’m 17 and free off brace for almost 2 years. So far I’m not experiencing any backache at all. I have chiropractor appointment once every few months and will meet up with Dr. Moira every half a year to have regular reviews. I would like to thank my family, friends and Dr. Moira for these continuous support all these time.
