International Scoliosis Awareness Day 2019

Today is International Scoliosis Awareness Day, so I’m sharing again my 12 years post-spinal fusion reflection, which tells my scoliosis story and how it led to a spinal fusion at age 16:

Basically, we didn’t catch it until it was too late—we didn’t know I had scoliosis until my curve was too severe. So for any of you readers with young loved ones, here’s some information on how to do a home screening for scoliosis.

And as someone who has now lived for 14 years with a fused spine, the best online resource I’ve found is Forever Fused, created by Julie Wilkins of Alignment Paths. 

My favorite thing there has been her video school (on Teachable) with yoga for spinal fusion/scoliosis.
