I have had scoliosis since I was 13 and spent three years in physical therapy. I am unable to lie flat on my back with my lower back touching a surface, which is fine if you don't mind a permanently arched back. Just one more reason for staying behind the camera instead of in front (in addition to being fat and ugly ). I do have to be thoughtful about what contortions I practice in my efforts to get the right angle on an image.
I have scoliosis.. pretty bad but according to docs not bad enough for surgery. Anyway I have to admit it can affect me standing straight, that can be a challenge but im learning to work with it. Some poses look funny on me, or some I can't even do.. it's definitely a burden but I prove that it can be done.
I have/had a bad case of scoliosis. My spine was in the shape of a S, my body was starting to twist and look really bad, and i even have a hump on one side of my back because of it. I had surgery for it when i was 12. I had trouble breathing since my body was twisting and the doctor told me if i had waiting a couple more months i wouldn't of been living. because how bad my curve was. And even though it has stopped me from doing what i love.....cheer leading, gymnastics and skateboarding. I have learned that modeling has made me feel better about it. You cant really tell it unless you stare. and when i bend over you can tell i have a hump on one side of my back.

Almost every girl I know who is tall has it in some form.
Same here. My spine is also slightly twisted like a spiral. Obviously to a very small degree but I couldn't think of a better way to explain it.
I wish I would've tried a brace when I was in junior high, because it really does hurt quite a bit after a shoot or a lot of standing at work.
Awww...mennn thought I was the only one. :p. I have major case of scoliosis. had to quit modeling cus no show/designer was interested in having a "curvy" chick rock the runway. I should be tall and graceful, instead I am unbalanced and humpy. smh!
