The 'Before' And 'After' Photos Of This Woman's Spine Are Unbelievable
Scoliosis is a sideways curvature of the spine that occurs most often during a growth spurt just before puberty. This brave woman’s spine had a 90 degree curve. She chose to have a radical medical surgery to straighten it out.
This is what she looked like before the surgery.
Her 90 degree curvature of the spine looks very drastic as seen in her x-ray below. What’s worse is when you have scoliosis, the spinal curve can get more severe over time.
During her surgery the surgeons inserted surgical supports, minimizing her spine’s curve down to less than 20 degrees.

Recovery from spine surgery can take a very long time, especially when trying to straighten a 90 degree curve! Although the healing process is full of back pain and other complications, this woman’s posture is thankfully looking much better.
For this girl, adjusting the curvature of her spine was the right course of action
