Learning your child has a spine condition like scoliosis or kyphosis typically raises many questions. Monitoring its progression as your child grows raises even more. Within our Parents Section, discover practical explanations of a range of spine topics and become empowered to help make the best decisions for your child.
Discovering that you have scoliosis can feel scary, but a curve in your back doesn't define you. You may be dealing with a brace, an upcoming surgery or just the unknown. You have questions, and we have answers. In our Adolescents Section, find resources, remedies and support—including real-life stories of patients like you.
Whether you've developed the condition in childhood or as an adult, the aging process can cause or intensify symptoms of scoliosis or a related condition.
