Hi my Son has scoliosis because his asthma was not controlled for a very long time. Please ask your doctors to check your childrens spines. We were all so worried about keeping my son alive that we overlooked the obvious. I did keep asking why his rib was sticking out but kept getting fobbed off. We have been seeing a chiropractor for nearly 2 years and the treatment is working but I feel so guilty. There is so much that can be done if it's seen early either by the NHS or privately. I just wanted to make other parents aware as the health care professionals probably wont be checking.
