The most important thing to do when caring for someone with structural scoliosis is to get it diagnosed sooner rather than later. So if you suspect structural scoliosis in someone you are caring for, you should make an appointment to see a doctor. Once structural scoliosis is diagnosed, it's also important to follow the doctor's treatment orders. Back braces can virtually slow the progression of scoliosis, so it's important to wear them. Back braces can cause self-esteem issues in young people suffering from scoliosis, so perhaps look into finding a peer support group in your area.
