  • Scoliosis History
    A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.
    What type of spinal curvature?
    Congenital Scoliosis
    Diagnosis Details
    Diagnosed in early teens with AIS, specialist decided at age 17 that my S-bend was well-balanced & no action required (& no investigaton done of my very small cavus foot). No further investigation until I was 40 at which time curve measured 45 degrees & diastematomyelia (split spinal cord) discovered via MRI. I now realise the split cord in fact caused the scoliosis & it is therefore not AIS but congenital.
    What curve pattern?
    Primary thoracic with one or more compensatory curves
    Had surgery?
    No surgery
    Worn a brace?
    No brace
