    Scoliosis is difficult to treat in those with extensive trunk paralysis. Braces can cause skin breakdown and AD if not used correctly. I would strongly recommend that you seek out treatment by an orthopedic surgeon who specializes in scoliosis management (often in teens). This may mean traveling to a specialty center or hospital in order to find someone with the right level of expertise. Surgery may be needed, and often is preferable to heavy duty bracing.
