(dr. brian ouellette/scoliosis specialist) "often times we will see them in a ridged brace - a body cast- but they will rotate inside so the curve continues to get worse." (dr. brian ouellette/scoliosis specialist) "we can pull the ribcage and de-rotate it. we can create a de-tortion by pulling the shoulder back. we can pull the ribcage forward and shoulder back. we can pull it down.. we can shift the spine right to left or left to right." there is no cure for scoliosis... but doctors say.. once the spine is finished growing.. a brace is no longer needed. for today's health minute, i'm holly firfer. we'll be right back with a final check on your forecast from karla. you're watching channel 13 action news... where you ask and we
