    a little confused...

    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??

    people keep saying how they're like 28 and 36 degrees. I'm just not sure what that means exactly.

    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.
