Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine, affecting approximately seven seven million people in the United States. While most cases are mild, some can progress to severe. Left untreated, scoliosis can result in severe deformity, disability, heart and lung issues, and even premature death. Early detection is crucial to prevent the progression. Studies have demonstrated that individuals with limited access to healthcare are more likely to be diagnosed with severe scoliosis. Fortunately, with some training, parents can easily identify early signs of scoliosis at home.


The most common type of scoliosis is Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS). Girls are ten times more likely to develop AIS than boys and are also ten times more likely to experience progression. Beyond physical challenges, AIS can cause emotional struggles, such as being bullied, low self-esteem, isolation, anxiety, and even depression.

Our mission is to increase awareness of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS), promoting early detection and intervention. We also aim to boost self-esteem and provide emotional support to patients.
