i have moderate scoliosis, but currently don't know of anyone else in my family that has it. My grandmother, and uncle have had spinal fusions for herneated disks, my dad suffers from herneated disks, and my older sister and myself are alreay experiencing early onset disk degeneration. My mom gave birth to a baby with spina bifida (which did not make it), and i have a second cousin who has hydrosyphalus (sp?) and stints to control it...

does anyone else have a family like this, and could it be related??
