Hm... Well, I had only very mild scoliosis until the age of 20. But when I was an infant, I was hospitalized for a series of grand mal seizures . As I was growing up, my mother (a NICU nurse) noticed I had a somewhat "compromised" upper body (in other words, somewhat weak/lazy in movement). So I did ballet as physical therapy of sorts... and it seemed to help as nobody could tell after the first couple of years. I wonder if there may be some link...
