1Physical therapy and brasing

If the apex of the deformity is inferior to T8 a TLSO can be used. However, the Milwaukee brace will generally give better results than a TLSO brace.

Different protocols recommend usage between 16 and 23 hours until skeletal maturity is achieved.

Gradual removal of the brace with usage during sleep is usually indicated.
