Scoliosis Post #9

Just figured I would update those who are following Mackenzie’s progress…and so I could keep track, too!  May 1st Mackenzie had an appointment with Hanger Prosthetics to make sure that they were pleased with how her new brace was doing.  Mr. Jeff (we’re on a first name basis with the guy) said that he is pleased as long as the curve stays below 10° when she is in the brace.  He said that his only concern was where part of the curve is higher up her back and the brace can’t help it up there.  They’ll just have to keep an eye on it.  Here she is modeling her plain brace (we have to wait another 2 weeks to get the one with the design she picked out):
