I have Scoliosis

Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine. Everyone's spine naturally curve a little bit. But for those that have Scoliosis, Like me, Their spine is much curvier than is needs to be. Usually when you are looking at a X-ray your spine will look like a "C" or "S".

Scoliosis is not a disease.

The Cause of Scoliosis

The cause in Scoliosis is mostly unknown. The most common type is called Idiopathic Scoliosis. Scoliosis is grouped by age.

  • In children at the age of 3 and younger, it is called Infantile Scoliosis.
  • In kids ages 4-10, it is called Juvenile Scoliosis.
  • Between the ages 11-18, it is called Adolescent Scoliosis.
I have Adolescent Scoliosis. Scoliosis can be found often in girls. Some people just most likely have Scoliosis and it can get worse through a growth spurt.

Your Doctor will determine what treatment is best for you.
