    How long does a candidate need to be out of a scoliosis brace prior to DoDMERB?

    If said candidate has an 19* thoracic, is asymptomatic and does not require any supports, either internal or external, will his file be triggered for review and need to provide relevant supporting documentation/x-rays?

    Does DQ only happen automatically when it his 30* and/or the uniform would not hang straight and/or needs supports/is symptomatic?

    Or do the answers to these questions depend on the service academy where applied?

    Thanks so much for your clarification!
