I developed mine during puperty as well as my sis. So, naturally I've checked my kids over the years. My oldest just turned 22 and has recently developed it. We dont know what degree it is yet, but we Do know what caused it. We have the genetic disorder Ehlers-Danlos syndrome. They say it rare, but I honestly believe its rarely properly diagnosed. It's not uncommon for people with EDS to have spine curvatures.
