How Did Scolios-us Start?

My name is Megan Glahn Castille, and I am the founder of Scolios-us. I earned my Master's degree from Baylor College of Medicine's Orthotics and Prosthetics program. I now work as a Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist and have specialized in scoliosis bracing. Of all of the topics we have learned about in school, scoliosis bracing was one of my favorites, which led me to start Scolios-us.

For six years, I have coached competitive gymnastics to girls from ages 6 to 16. I’ve watched these girls go through all of the struggles that come with growing up. Growing up is already hard enough without having to wear a scoliosis brace. Add a brace, and it’s a whole new ball game. With the brace, scoli kids and teenagers have to transition both physically and socially. Their bodies have to adjust to this new brace, but I believe the social transition is even more difficult.

While I originally started the organization to scoli patients transition into bracing, Scolios-us has flourished over the years and now offers support to all kids and teens with scoliosis, regardless of the treatment. During adolescence, fitting in and belonging are of the utmost importance, and having scoliosis can often make our patients feel different from their peers. The goal of Scolios-us is to make this big world feel much smaller, helping scoli kids and teens see that they are not alone on their journey. As Helen Keller once said, “Alone we can do so little, together we can do so much.” At Scolios-us, we are putting the "US" in scoliosis!

Scolios-us Research

The goals of Scolios-us research include determining its helpfulness and usefulness for patients and validating it as an effective clinical tool to help bridge the gap between healthcare providers and patients. Our pilot study was completed in 2018. Scolios-us Founder, Megan Glahn, CPO, presented this study at the 2019 SOSORT and 2019 ACPOC meetings. Below is the presentation she gave at the SOSORT International Meeting.
