I' just turned 17, and I am 5'6.5. My mom is my height, while my dad is 5'8. I started puberty around 13, but I was like 5' around that time. I believe I shot up to 5'4 at the end of 8th grade.
And around freshman year I was like what, 5'5? Then around early 2009 I shot up to 5'6, and I grew half an inch during the summer.
Problem Is that A month ago, I was diagnosed with minor scoliosis. I heard that scoliosis can shrink you. And I can't afford to lose inches in height -__-
So yeah, im supposed to go to the orthpedic doctor , and my mom said i'll probably need a brace. But Im not really sure what the brace will do. Will it help me to grow taller? Or am I doomed to be 5'6 due to scoliosis?
