We could see the Scoliosis develop in our daughter long before puberty so I don't think that's odd...I think that's a good thing. They usually don't do the surgical proceedure until after puberty because the kids don't grow after the surgery... at least that's what we were told.
We're actually in Canada so can't help you there! So far we're happy with the ND we're working with but we're only into it a couple months. She has a gal that does craniosacral therapy in her office and I do want to try it but we think after this protocal we're on.
