Scoliosis primarily affects teenage girls, thus young girls make up the majority of our patients. Being in that awkward time of life between adolescence and adulthood is challenging enough without being faced with a chronic, rapidly progressive condition like scoliosis. Most of the girls are reluctant to assume personal responsibility for the exercise routine they have to complete multiple times per day, but in a short amount of time something amazing happens. They begin to learn their own strength to overcome adversity. We watch them transform from a child to an adult before our very eyes.
