Our Journey with Idiopathic Scoliosis

Just like my dog, Tiger, I was a happy, healthy, active teen who was fit and occupied most of my free time dancing jazz, ballet, and contemporary, as well as gymnastics. I enjoyed dancing but looking back I did sometimes have lower back pain.

But it was never horrible, it was just a little ache.  It was nowhere near as bad as Tiger’s back aches that she suffered when she overplayed.

I was very lucky that my amazing dance teacher noticed that there might have been something wrong with my back.  She suspected that I had scoliosis.


After being examined by a professional in the field of scoliosis it was confirmed that I had adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.  What do I do now?

Luckily, my mom found an expert physiotherapist in the field who could help us navigate to the best doctor and brace specialist.  And my physiotherapist also suggested Schroth, a type of exercise or physiotherapy that was designed just for scoliosis.


Like Tiger, I had to work very hard to make my back better, and I did so by following my doctor’s instructions.  I was told to take supplements, such as vitamin D and magnesium and to keep fit and aim at my best body weight, wear a brace, and practice Schroth exercises often forever.

Thank You For Listening To Our Story!


Hello I am Ophélie, this is my personal experience after being diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.


I was fortunate to be diagnosed by my dance and Pilates teacher, and then treated by a group of exceptional experts in the field of medicine and brace design.  I hope that my journey will help other teens diagnosed with this problem.
