Fighting Scoliosis Together - Brooke's Story


Hi! My name is Brooke ,and I am 13 years old from Alberta, Canada. I was diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis in May of 2018 when I was 11. I was sent to get an x-ray a few days later. At this point, I just felt extremely unlucky. I knew that there were way worse things that could have happened to me, but out of everyone I knew, I had to be the one with a medical condition. After receiving an x-ray, my local chiropractor called my mom and told her that I had a 27 degree right thoracic curve and a 24-degree left lumbar curve.

We hoped that they would be mild, not moderate or severe. But luckily, we still caught it early enough to effectively treat it. So, I was then sent to another chiropractor in a city two hours away, where I was put into a brace 20 hours a day for four(ish) years. I have a Scolibrace which doesn’t just hold your curve in its place, but it also corrects it. I also had to go to my city chiro for 4 days, for an intensive Schroth program. There I received shock wave therapy, Scoliroll treatment, and traction table treatment. In January 2019, I found out that my right curve progressed from 27 to 35 degrees and my left decreased from 24 to 21. I also got a new brace ordered at this time because I grew out of my old one. And then my x-ray in August showed an improvement from 35 to 30 on the right and from 21 to 19 on the left.

I have a Instagram scoliosis support page called @scoliosis._.life which recently hit 900 followers! I also help run a group account called @_scoliosis.fighters_ with 4 other girls. On my group account, we are currently looking for some scoliosis stories to post, so if you would like to be featured on our page, please dm us! You are also welcome to dm my page to talk to me! Thank you for reading my story!
