No More Scoliosis Warriors

We hear the phrase all the time - scoliosis warriors. It is frequently used to describe the brave young women and men who are diagnosed with scoliosis, and you often hear and see it on social media, t-shirts, etc. Here at Scolios-us, we've even used the phrase. But it's time we reconsider.

Yes, you are brave.

Yes, you are strong.

Yes, you are resilient.

Yes, you are determined.

But you are NOT a scoliosis warrior.

Why not?

Because scoliosis is NOT the enemy.

You are NOT battling scoliosis.

You are NOT fighting against your body.

Your body is NOT the enemy.

This message is worth repeating.

Scoliosis is permanent. Even if you have surgery to correct your scoliosis, you still have scoliosis. If you think of scoliosis as something that needs to be fixed or fought, how will you learn to love your body? How will you come to peace with your body when you still have scoliosis?

We Need to Shift our Way of Thinking

Here's the truth - you cannot truly love yourself and your body if you are fighting against it. We need to shift our thinking and try thinking of scoliosis treatment as a form of self-care. By wearing your brace or doing your exercises or having surgery, you are caring for your body. You are caring for your body in a different way than other people might have to care for theirs, but that's what it boils down to - caring, loving, and protecting your body.

Shifting your mindset takes time and practice. Like most things in life, it won't happen overnight and that's ok. When you notice yourself thinking or talking about scoliosis in a way that makes it the enemy, try replacing those thoughts with any of the below affirmations or your own affirmations!

I am giving my body the care it deserves.

I am proud of myself for caring for my body.

I am so strong and brave for loving my body. 

I am giving my body exactly what it needs. 

What's the Alternative?

And we'll admit it, the phrase "scoliosis warriors" is catchy, but we hope we've highlighted why that mindset is probably not the healthiest way of thinking. So let's see what we can come up with! What's another phrase we can use to describe our scoli kids and teens? Comment below!
