Being aware and being educated is the best way to help your own children and those around you.
My goal is to post a link to more information each day, along with a small fact about scoliosis. I will also post a link to a story of a child with scoliosis. My dear friend Catie has a blog at ChicagoNow.com called Suck It, Scoliosis. She will feature a different story each day.
I am so blessed to have found so many connections on what could have been a very lonely journey. The statistics show that infantile scoliosis, or Early Onset Scoliosis (EOS) is extremely rare.
Only 1% of all scoliosis cases develop in the first 3 years of life. Of that small percentage 90% of those cases will self resolve and require no treatment.
We are the 10% - - - of the 1%!!.
I know easily 50-60 families with children who have progressive infantile scoliosis. Crazy. Thank you, Google:) and Facebook!
Today's story is about Addyson:)
