Abnormal lateral curvature of the spine is most often diagnosed in childhood or early adolescence the spines normal curves occur at the cervical thoracic and lumbar region in the so-called sagittal plane
There are many great examples of people who are not only living (or lived) life, with scoliosis but are thriving with it: Lamar Gant. Usain Bolt. Sarah Michelle Gellar.
This sideways curvature of the spine can have many side effects and health problems. So, the Social Security Administration (SSA) offers benefits for scoliosis disorder. If you are wondering whether scoliosis is a disability, the answer is YES! It is a disability, and you can get disability benefits for it.
AANS suggests there are three categories into which the different forms of scoliosis fit: idiopathic, congenital, and neuromuscular.
Severe scoliosis (80+degrees) can potentially affect not only the spine and rib cage, but also, may eventually affect the heart, lungs, and other internal organs.
Scoliosis can limit height and normal growth. Scoliosis can reduce the ability of the lungs to function normally. Very simply, scoliosis can shorten a life if not treated properly.
