Scoliosis is a common orthopaedic condition affecting spinal alignment, growth, and function. A wide variety of conditions, many of which affect the neuromuscular system (eg, cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy), are associated with the development of scoliosis.
Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) develops in approximately 1% to 3% of the population, primarily in minor forms that do not become progressive or problematic in later life. However, a small percentage of curves do progress to a range that warrants treatment with either an orthosis or surgical arthrodesis.
Started in 2004, this group was created by Simone Icough who herself had Scoliosis surgery at the age of 12 for a 76º Thoracic Curve and now has a Harrinton rod from T5 to L1.
