I could be wrong; but I think scoliosis is "curvature of the spine." My aunt has had it since she was a young girl, and she is now 86. But, I know young adults who have it. Both my aunts and myself have received some VERY GOOD help from a good Chiropractor. Perhaps they cannot cure people's health problems, but they sure can make you feel a whole lot better. Also, as I've suggested to a few other people, you should put the word, "scoliosis," into a www-search, to see what appears. There might be a web site for scoliosis which tells of a "national foundation" which would send you information and booklets.
