International Scoliosis Awareness Day 2017
Did you know?
June is scoliosis awareness month and Saturday 24th June 2017 is International Scoliosis Awareness Day! So make sure you put that date in your diary 🙂
The day will soon be here and the Scoliosis Association have now launched their 2017 campaign #gotyourback17. You can download some posters and a fundraising pack from their website here: International Scoliosis Awareness Day 2017.
Throughout June, I have lots of content planned for this blog to help raise awareness. I plan to blog and tweet facts about scoliosis, as well as share more about my scoliosis story.
It would also be fantastic to guest blog on other people’s blogs and I would love to feature some scoliosis stories on my blog.
If you would like to be involved and feature your scoliosis story on my blog, please get in touch.
I would LOVE to hear from you. Let’s help spread the word about scoliosis!

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.

Thank you for sharing your story, it’s important that people are more aware about scoliosis.
I was diagnosed with it when I was 15, (I’m 19 now) the doctor said I have a mild curvature to the left in my lower back and only recently, another doctor told me that as well as still having the mild curvature in my back, I have another slight curvature in the middle of my back. As I have been suffering with more back aches, the doctor has set up physiotherapy which I will start soon, hopefully this will make my back stronger and then I won’t have as much pain.
I have always worried about how it will affect me in the future but through reading your blog, it has given me more confidence and reasurrance in the fact that there are ways in which it can be looked upon in a postive way.
Thanks for sharing your story.
Thanks Ruth, I hope the physio helps you xx
Thank you so much for sharing your story. I was just diagnosed with high moderate curves and it’s been really hard. I’m always self conscious about my shoulders being uneven, and my shirts not fitting right. Plus it’s been really painful. The doctors can’t see me till December so I have to live in 24/7 pain for another 4 months and your tips have really helped! Thank you !
