Inspired by my own Instagram obsession, I thought I’d list my top Scoliosis Instagram Accounts to follow.
I must admit, I am a little addicted to Instagram at the moment! Apart from Pinterest, Instagram is the main social platform that I use to try and raise awareness of this blog and scoliosis in general (shameless plug – you can follow me on Instagram here!)
The thing about Instagram is, it can be incredibly inspiring IF you follow the right accounts. I made it my mission late last year to unfollow any account that doesn’t inspire me, motivate me, or make me feel good about myself.
I find Instagram is a great platform if you have a certain interest/niche – I love it as it’s great for connecting with other runners and those with scoliosis. I feel like over time I have built up a little community of friendship and support on there which is lovely and can be very motivating!
Below are 10 scoliosis related Instagram accounts that I enjoy following and am inspired by (in no particular order).
I’m sure I have missed some so please feel free to share any accounts that you are inspired by in the comments below 🙂

3. Hayley Wakefield @hayleyelysefit
I have only recently come across Hayley’s Instagram account but I find it incredibly inspiring! Hayley is a PT who has scoliosis and shares strengthening exercises and videos on her Instagram, she also has a scoliosis e-book.
I really want to work on my upper body strength to help with my scoliosis and my running. Sometimes I don’t know where to start though, especially with having scoliosis, so I love coming across accounts like this – it really motivates me to get going!
