I am a 33 year old married mum of 2. I found out I had scoliosis at age 13. I have never worn a brace or had surgery. My curves are 53deg on top and 52deg on bottom(approx). I also have a curve in my tailbone and neck. I was recently told to stop working. I cannot sit or stand for more than an hour at a time. Laying down on my side is the only thing that seems to help relieve the pain without taking drugs. I am trying to get the Halifax regional school board to start testing for scoliosis in elementary school. This test is done in most school boards across Canada. I test my own children frequently!!! - because this is usually past down from family members.
