Answers: vertebrae brace for 17 degree curve. No.
is it discouraging. no
I'd been treated for between 8 and 16 and my curve never go over 12 or so. they had be doing exercises for the put money on. some of them seemed pretty stupid to me but amazingly it worked I go down to 8 degrees. My sister wore a brace for 5 years for 23 hours a morning for most of that. she had what they call upon an "s" curve. her highest curve when it be discovered was 50 degree. She coupled the brace with exercises, i don't know what the curves go down to but they did go down. A side minute we were sent to a physical consultant for the exercise. We were also told by our doc that swimming be good for it and if sis be swimming she obviously could hold on to the brace off for longer afterwards the hour. She joined the YMCA and swam lap several times a week. I didn't have strain from the scoliosis nor did my sister but In the many years since I've injured my support a couple times and the exercise works wonders so if they give you that thieve it and stick to it.
See if chiropractic can help beforehand you go for any surgery stuff. You might be surprised!
