June is National Scoliosis Awareness Month!
May 23rd, 2012
Every year the National Scoliosis Foundation and the Scoliosis Research Society promote National Scoliosis Awareness Month.
From the website:
“A few seconds can possibly save a child you know years of pain later in life.Â Â Â Itâ??s time to spread the word. Scoliosis, when left untreated, can get worse and may cause chronic back pain, impact heart and lung function and take a toll on self-esteem. Screening for the condition is non-invasive and takes about 30 seconds. With early detection and proper treatment, people diagnosed with scoliosis can lead healthy, active lives.”

Join Scoliosis Rehab in recognizing the importance of early diagnosis and the conservative management of scoliosis.Â Help spread the word!
