  1. My curve was at a 45 degree angle. I had surgery in 1975 (I’m 63 now) . They put one Herrington Rod in my back ~ and it’s still there. Back then, they put a cast on me from my underarms ~ down to my hips. They let it dry a day and then made a cut down each side of the cast and taped it up. After surgery, I was flat on my back, and in the hospital for a week with that taped up cast on. They put a new cast on me and I was released from the hospital. I wore it for nine months. They changed it twice during that time so I wouldn’t stink. Ha!! They have come a long way since then….I don’t even think you have to wear a brace after surgery.

    You might check out Ashley Black’s facia blaster tools. I have them, but don’t use them like I should.

  2. Great listen! I had the corrected surgery when I was 14 (27 years ago!) Overall, I feel lucky and have completed seven marathons, but within the last three years, I have learned the hard way that I need to pay attention to my body and understand that it works differently than others. I have minimal limitations but have had to seek professionals who understand scoliosis and give me the best exercises when dealing with compensation. I compensate a lot, especially on long runs! It’s cool to hear other stories of people who have been on a similar journey.
