Feature in Backbone magazine
This month I was proud to have my blog featured in the Autumn edition of BackBone magazine (available to members of the Scoliosis Association UK) for a blog post I wrote for International Scoliosis Awareness Day (ISAD) back in June last year.
I love getting involved in International Scoliosis Awareness Day, which falls on the last Saturday of June each year, as I think it’s vitally important in helping to raise awareness of the condition on social media.
Scoliosis is a huge part of my life and I’m making it my mission with this website to provide help and advice to others with scoliosis and to those who may be facing or recovering from scoliosis surgery. I myself never had much support or anyone to turn to when I was first diagnosed at the age of 14 and I think this is so important.
I have recently been spending a lot of time on my blog, you may have noticed that the blog URL address has changed slighty since the Backbone article was published (it does re-direct don’t worry, so you can still access it via the old address!)
This is just the beginning of the transformation of my blog and I plan to do much more to raise awareness and money for the Scoliosis Association over the coming months as I build this site up. Watch this space! 🙂
Preparing for Scoliosis Surgery
I’ve written loads of posts about my scoliosis surgery, recovery, pain, exercises and living with scoliosis in general.

I had scoliosis surgery in 2010 and blog about my experiences living with scoliosis. My aim is to raise awareness of scoliosis and help and inspire others with the condition.

Simply wanted to let you know I find your blog very helpful. I haven’t yet had surgery, and I’m still on the fence. I have two 64-degree curves, and have frequent pain, but I’m still not sure if surgery is right for me. Just wanted to let you know that reading about the ups and downs of your recovery has been enlightening. So, thanks very much!
Thanks so much for your lovely comment. I’m glad you have found my blog helpful it really means a lot!
All the best with your decision I know what you are going through. If you ever want to chat let me know, send me an email or message on Facebook.
