Brief Answer: Yes you can take support of thoracic brace Detailed Answer: Hello, I have studied your case. If you are having respiratory difficulty or you need for cosmetic correction then you can go for scoliosis correction. If there is any neurological involvement then you may need surgical correction. Yes you can take support of thoracic brace as your doctor suggested. For symptoms analgesic and neurotropic medication can be started. Till time, avoid lifting weights, Sit with support to back.
