Scoliosis Support  Meeting Group  

 

Empower For Self Help           

 

            London Scoliosis Support Group is for people who suffer from scoliosis, teenagers and adults. You can come and talk about how to cope with scoliosis, share your story, talk about your ideas, and have friends.

            We know how hard is to live with spinal deformities. Most people do not understand how difficult it is. So if you need any support and you want to talk to other people dealing with scoliosis please join us.

             Support group meets periodically. If you need further information about group meetings, simply send email  scoliosissupportgroup@scoliosisinlondon.co.uk

            All patients who have scoliosis and parents are welcome.

RISK FACTORS FOR  SCOLIOSIS

 

 

1/SEX - mild curves affect boys and girls equally, but girls are 10 times more likely to have curves that can progress.

 

2/AGE - the younger the child when scoliosis appears, the bigger chance of progression.

 

3/GENETIC FACTORS - it is thought that scoliosis runs in families. 

 

 

Do you suffer from pins and needles?

Back pain?

 

 

Early detection may lead to early treatment,which may stop the curve from getting worse.

 

Children of women who have scoliosis should be screened for scoliosis regularly...
