Hi Trents Mom,
Yes, you’ve just reminded me, I have EDS and I’ve had mild scoliosis to my knowledge for over 20 years (although I didn’t know it was called scoliosis until about 4 years ago!) you wouldn’t know it, by looking at me clothed but a physio spotted the ‘spinal twist’ as she referred to it, all those years ago, when I was having a lower back ‘rogue disc’ problem. I may have had the scoliosis from birth, I don’t know but what I do know is, that it hasn’t really caused me any major problems. Nor did any other part of my condition, until I banged my head.
If you search in google for “EDS Ehlers Danlos Scoliosis” there’s loads that comes up, so there’s obviously a link.
