Let's share how did we, or how did the person you are here for (I know there are parents here for their kids), find out you/he/she had scoliosis?

Mine was when I was 15 I was tailoring a dress. The dress had a zipper on the back side. Every time I would wear it, mom would say that zipper looks twisted. Mom called tailor and told her that seems that the zipper wasn't well put, but tailor assured it was ok and straight after I took it off. Then again tried it and tailor eventually hid the zipper so no one could see it was twisted.

I went back home to keep on touching my back and bend forward. That's when we saw something unusual. A hump. That was when the roller coaster started..

When I was 16 I had so much pain I couldn't move. My mom took me to the chiro and it was discovered then.:( I wish it could have been found sooner. I had been complaining of pain for 4 years, but it got so bad I couldn't stand it anymore.

It was picked up at checks done at school in New Zealand, aged 13.

It was not picked up during school checks so I guess I did not have it then.However, I remember my mother always telling me to stand up straight . She is gone now so I cannot ask her about it.
Mine was found by family doctor when I was in mid thirties.It was just mentioned.No one said to do anything about it.Did not really bother me until 2-3 years ago when we moved to NC and I located my current surgeon.
