Hey, I don't know all that much a bout scoliosis. I haven't known about having it for all that long. I was just wondering why people are saying that they have 2 degrees. I'm just not sure where those are coming from. Could someone let me know??

I also dont know much about scoli.This is only a month new to our family.But if I am understanding correctly,One curve is your thoratic and one is Lumbar.Top and bottom of your spine.

When someone says two different numbers, it is because they have two curves. With some people they have a main curve which is the actual problem and a compensory curve which is caused by the main curve. The compensory curve is the back's way of trying to balance itself.
