Meanwhile, are you wondering what scoliosis is? Here are four facts about Scoliosis:

  • Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine – a spine is usually straight but! Scoliosis turns the spine into an S or C curve. Interesting, right?
  • Scoliosis mostly has no known cause. It mostly happens at the adolescent phase between ages 10 to 16 (8x more in girls than boys).
  • Scoliosis takes a huge physical and mental toll on a person. Large progressive curves could impact the heart and lungs. Looking “abnormal” can be very tough to live with!
  • Scoliosis can’t be prevented but it can be defeated! Early detection goes a long way.

To learn more about this condition and how to detect scoliosis early, please contact Beyond A Curved Spine (See contact deets below).

See you on two wheels this Saturday! #CycleForScoliosis
