Please Join Us!
Because nobody has to deal with scoliosis alone.

Join together in:
  1. SHARING information and experiences at our meetings at which medical, and other professionals, speak and answer questions.
  2. COPING with the medical, emotional and social problems affecting patients and families by being a support group that is there when needed.
  3. CARING about EACH patient and family by listening to individual concerns and reaching out to all.
We are a non-profit group with no paid staff. Our expenses come from providing and printing information, the cost of contacting members, reacting to distress calls, keeping abreast of the latest developments in the treatment of scoliosis, promoting research, etc...

By becoming a member you will receive BACKTALK, the publication of our parent organization, The Scoliosis Association, Inc. BACKTALK is written by medical proffesionals and patients and is distributed 3-4 times a year. It includes up to date information on the diagnosis, management, and treatment of scoliosis.
