Hello! … This blog is about our family’s experiences, and information and opinions we have compiled in our efforts to care for our daughters’ scoliosis. I am not a doctor, or a physical therapist, nor do I have any medical training or license of any kind. The opinions expressed herein, even when stated as if fact, are warranted as no more than one crazy father’s ramblings. Any health/medical related treatment (or lack thereof) decisions should be discussed with licensed medical professionals and are your own responsibility.
Our twin, 12 year old girls were diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) over a year ago, now. We’ve learned much and doubtless have far more to learn.
I hope sharing our family’s experiences, hard-won lessons, and research, will help others accelerate their learning curve and have some additional questions to ask their doctors, which may be beneficial in helping their own children and grandchildren. When your child has AIS, time is of the essence!!! In most cases, you have only about 3 years to positively impact the curve, and at least try to avoid progression, before they’re out of the growth stage. Don’t delay! Learn as much as you can, as fast as you can. I’ll try to help.
