Just been diagnosed?

If you or your child is diagnosed with scoliosis then it can be a very worrying time. Try not to panic, having scoliosis does not mean that you won't be able to lead a full and active life. It also does not necessarily mean that an operation will be needed. Many people simply need to have their spine checked regularly to make sure the curve isn’t getting bigger.

The most important thing is to make sure that the doctor arranges a referral to see a scoliosis specialist. If they are not sure who the nearest scoliosis specialists are or you want to check you can call SAUK who will be able to give you this information.
