    The above presentation shows a severe case of Kyphosscoliosis and describes the process and shows photo's of her surgery.

    She is a very brave girl indeed

    Again beware before opening the link the pictures are graphic and could be upsetting.

    Thanks Mark...I think! That is interesting, although I think I'd rather have been kept in the dark about the position they have you in while they operate!

    I love how it says

    "Every zig needs a zag"

    I think my cousins may have a little of that spine curving that way sort of thing. What is a "normal" back meant to look like from the side anyway? Because my back is quite curvy with a sticky out bum if that makes sense. Like in yoga we had to lie on the floor and flatten the back to it but I can only flatten it to the floor if I bend my knees. But I think that is the case for everyone though (that you have to bend knees, as the back should not be flat anyway, but should you be able to push it flat?)

    A healthy spine is NOT flat! Have a look at a diagram of a healthy spine:

    http://www.lieberson.com/en/Images/07_Med_...0copy%20250.jpg

    I think it's normal for a non-scoliotic person to be able to flatten out the lumbar curve fully and the thoracic curve to some extent. Pilates relies on this motion. Look up lordosis and kyphosis in the SSo Glossary for details of normal curves though.

    That's one of the reasons that scoliosis surgery is such a craft - you're not just straightening out the scoliosis, you're shaping the spine in 3D in such a way as to correct and maintain the sagittal profile (the spine as viewed from the side) and minimise rotation, AND correcting the scoliosis, and then taking into account the amount the spine will 'settle' back.

    this for scoligirl in answer to her question in her post in the Kyphosis Surgery thread

    I hope it answers your question as what is considered a normal kyphotic spine

    cheers
