Hi - i was interested to read this. On telling my mother that Kaitlin had been diagnosed with scoliosis her first reaction was "well no one in our family has it" (isn't that just typical??). A few weeks later she told me she found out that my cousin's daughter has it and then she found out that her own brother had it and had to wear a leather brace (or corset he called it) as a child which she had forgotten about. So yes i suppose it is in our family. I recently had an appt with the physio and she told me i have a very mild curve as well (I am 40), funny because i was screened in year 7 and have also had many chiro and physio appts over the years and no one ever mentioned it, i don't have the best back in the world either.
Our surgeon is rather blunt and first question was "anyone in the family with a crooked back"?
Mind you there are some far far worse things she could have inherited so we have to be happy this is something that can be fixed. Melinda.
