.In Pictures.

{Pictures are in a random order.}

These are some of my x-rays. The one in the left is one of the ones I had taken before I had started my week long intensive therapy. The one on the right is from after. If you look closely, you can see that there is actually a very big change.

This is one of the many weight systems that I have had to use. It helps to trick my spine into wanting to be straighter again.

This is a scoliosis traction chair. I got to sit in it for up to 45 minutes up to 4 times a day during intensive weeks. It helped to pull my spine back in place too.

This is another one of the machines that I had to lay on. I did it 15 minutes at a time, up to 6 times a day. You lay one the table, get strapped in, then they turn it on, it makes your legs go up and down.

This is a picture of the x-ray that the brace doctors drew markings and notes all over.

This is me getting the mold for my brace made.
X-ray of my neck. In this picture it was at about 15 degrees, not good.
More brace molding...
Getting ready to get the mold.
This is the ADORABLE (not) outfit they gave me to wear while I was getting the mold for my brace.
The back of the mold is DONE!!!
