JUNE is also 'Scoliosis Awareness Month', scoliosis is a deformed curvature of the spine into the shape of a S or C, that can cause severe backaches and lung failure for many people who have this permanent orthopaedic neurological condition.
I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age nine and wore a medical back brace before and after having orthopaedic surgery at age twelve.
I'm very thankful to everyone who helped me recover after having this very complex orthopaedic procedure and for the healing strength of God to deal with the sometimes severe aches and pains that people with scoliosis have on a daily basis.
So please, please, please see if you or your family member has scoliosis because it is very important to start an ORTHOPEDIC doctor recommended treatment plan now if possible. Although, scoliosis is a permanent medical condition, each person's curve will be different according to their body shape, age and bone density.
There are thousands of people all over the world who have scoliosis and are able to do some form of physical activity with very few limitations, but it is always best to be careful and wear comfortable shoes for walking whenever possible. For more information about scoliosis visit a local hospital, library or medical research center in the city where you live.
