This page is dedicated to great resources for girls with scoliosis.
CurvyGirlsScoliosis.com is an awesome site full of helpful information. My favorite part is the discussion forum where girls can ask questions and get answers from other girls from all over the country.
You are not alone! This book gives it to you straight--it's written by girls with scoli, for girls with scoli. To order a copy, go to http://straighttalkscoliosis.com/order.html.
Got some questions? Need some encouragement? Meet 12 year old Tiffany Sullivan who vlogs (video blogs) on YouTube about her scoliosis experience. She's honest, funny, and encouraging. Click here to watch her first vlog.
When the pads on my brace start to rub on my skin, I use Anti-Monkey Butt powder to reduce the chafing. It's a funny name, but it really works! Click on the pic for a link about it.
Sometimes bracing isn't the answer and surgery is required to improve your scoliosis. This website has two parts: one for teens and one for parents. It describes the surgical process and answers many questions. Click on the image below or go to AboutKidsHealth.
This doesn't technically apply to scoli braces (yet), but it is such a clever and inspiring idea that it must be included on this page of great ideas. The pic below is from the Lazardo Art and the art of baby helmet painting Facebook Page and here is a link to the creative and inspiring Lazardo Art website. They also do leg braces. I think we should ask about body braces!
When people ask about our brace, we shouldn't be embarrassed or ashamed, it's a time to share and educate people. Click here to see the entire book or to order a copy for yourself, your school, your library...
