Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that typically develops during the growth spurt stage just before puberty.
While the condition, which is estimated to affect about three percent of teenagers worldwide, can be caused by disorders such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.

What is scoliosis?
– According to Healthline.com, it is the ‘abnormal curvature of the spine’
– Signs or symptoms of the condition, which has various forms, include back pain, uneven hips, different shoulder blade levels
– Treatments include bracing or surgery depending on age or state of the condition
– Princess Eugenie was diagnosed with scoliosis as a child and at age 12 had surgery on her back
– She proudly showed off her surgery scar at her wedding in October 2018
Most cases are mild and resolve naturally, but some spine deformities worsen as children grow.
The most severe curvatures can dramatically reduce the amount of space within the chest cavity, making it difficult to breathe.
One of the most famous names who has suffered from scoliosis aside from Natalie Roser is Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter Princess Eugenie, who was diagnosed with the condition at the age of 11.
