Meet Lindsey

Northern Utah

Hi! My name is Lindsey and I am 12 years old. I was diagnosed in August 2014.  My doctor looked at my back and said I had scoliosis. He sent me for an X-ray where they measured my curves as 42* on top and 37* on the bottom.  I was sent to an orthopedic surgeon a month later.  By then my curves had become 55* on top and 47* on bottom. My doctor said the best option was surgery since it was too severe for a brace. 

 

I am a competitive swimmer so he told us he would fuse shorter to make sure I would be able to continue doing the sport I love. October 21014, I had my surgery. They fused me from T3-T12. Soon I will be able to get back in the water and I can’t wait to get back to competing!  

 

Curvy Girls is such a fantastic group and I want to thank them for helping so many girls with scoliosis! I can’t wait to meet more Curvy Girls in Northern Utah!
