Scoliosis History

A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.

What type of spinal curvature?:
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
Diagnosis Details:
I was diagnosed with a lumbar curve of 45 when I was 17. In resent years I have noticed it getting worse with the pain increasing too. I went about seeing chiropractors and getting physiotherapy to see if it will help as I was told my spine could not get worse after it stops growing and at 45 degrees I didn't thing surgery was an option for me. A year and half ago I decided to see a surgery anyway as the pain was getting much worse and nothing else was working. When I went to see Mr kiely he told me my curve had actually gotten worse and was now close to 60 degrees if not more as I had no new scan with on the day. I was put on the surgery waiting list but in ireland that's over a year even with private health insurance.
What curve pattern?:
Single lumbar
Curve Pattern Details:
One curve around 60 degrees
Had surgery?:
No surgery
Surgery Details:
Having surgery in August
Worn a brace?:
No brace
Bracing Details:
Found out about my curve much to late so bracing wasn't an option for me
