It’s about improving the well being of people with scoliosis so that we may be there for each other even when it feels like no one else is there. My goal is to help build confidence and to offer encouragement for kids, teens and adults with scoliosis.
Famous people with scoliosis - Kurt Cobain
In an interview with Jon Savage, Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain said:
“My body is damaged from music in two ways: not only has my stomach inflamed from irritation, but I have scoliosis. I had minor scoliosis in junior high, and since I’ve been playing guitar ever since, the weight of the guitar has made my back grow in this curvature. So when I stand, everything is sideways. It’s weird… I go to a chiropractor every once in a while. You can’t really correct scoliosis, because it’s a growth in the spine. Your spine grows through your adolescent years in a curvature. Most people have a small curvature in their spine anyhow, though some people have it really bad and have to wear metal braces. It gives me a back pain all the time. That really adds to the pain in our music. It really does. I’m kind of grateful for it.”
