Re: just found out my 9 year old son has congential scoliosis
Hi. I have scoliosis and although I haven't had surgery yet, I do have a general notion of the complications... evidently. Haha. If his legs are uneven, it is probably scoliosis. From my knowledge, you should be informed of the size of the curve. It is very important to know the severity at such a young age. The best thing you can do for your son is monitor his posture, try to make it the best as possible, as well as make sure he get's enough exercise, especially developing back muscles. I do believe if you are born with it, it does have a higher potential of getting rather serious, but as for now just monitor it and wait for a higher power to make the decision.
