Question: My 12 year old boy has Pectus Excavatum…should he continue wearing posture brace?
My 12 year old boy was recently diagnosed with mild Pectus Excavatum. He’s having NO symptoms or difficulties. About a month prior to the diagnosis we had bought a brace for his posture. It’s worn similar to a backpack with a strap around the ribs. My question is..should we continue to have him wear the brace, and if so how often/long? We want to still help his posture if we can but don’t want to make the PE worse. His posture is definitely not the best but we wonder now if it’s not as bad as we thought but the PE is making it look worse.
