Smile Spinecor adult scoliosis brace question

Are there any adults out there who have tried the spinecor adult scoliosis brace? If so, did it help decrease your back pain? Did it help you function better . . ie can you sit longer, do more housework, lift heavy things better, push/pull a grocery cart more easily?

Would love to get some unbiased feedback from folks who have actually worn this!

I am a 49 year old female who has had scoliosis since i was a teenager. Currently my thoracic curve is 55 degrees, the lumbar curve is 33 degrees. I never was braced as a teenager or had surgery.

I have problems with pain/ muscle tightness/ stiffness in my right upper back, and am looking for some new solutions. This brace sounds promising , but it is expensive (about $3,000 U.S. dollars). All the studies I've read on it have been written by the people in Canada who developed it. thanks for reading!
