Item description for Stopping Scoliosis: The Complete Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment by Nancy Schommer...

Discusses how scoliosis develops, its various forms, diagnosis, and treatment options.

Publishers Description
Scoliosis--curvature of the spine--is a disorder so common that twenty states now require screening of preteens. One in every fifty American youngsters is affected by it. While scoliosis is an upsetting condition, it can almost always be treated if detected early.

Written by a scoliosis sufferer, Stopping Scoliosis takes the reader through every stage of the condition. It discusses ways to diagnose scoliosis before exploring all the options for treating it--both surgical and non-surgical. The advancements in bracing and surgical techniques that have been made in the past few years are examined in detail. Also included are methods for managing pain, tips on how to prepare for surgery, and compelling patient stories from people of all ages.

Endorsed by the National Scoliosis Foundation, this is the most comprehensive, up-to-date book on scoliosis available.

Reviews - What do customers think about Stopping Scoliosis: The Complete Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment?

Great for teens!  Jan 9, 2004
As a teen with scoliosis, I found this book extremly helpful from the start. It told me everything I needed to know, even through the major sugery, which I had to have. I would reccomend this book to anyone with scoliosis, especially teens.
Good information  Jun 28, 2000
I have scoliosis and have gone through bracing and surgery. This book gave me a better understanding about the disorder and it's treatment options. The first-hand accounts provide a personal face, reminding the rest of us we're not alone! Some of the material about surgery and bracing is outdated, but it's a good book for anyone facing scoliosis treatment.
Information is dated  May 24, 1999
Based on other books and research on the web, I found the information to be rather dated. However, the personal stories of people coping with scoliosis are helpful.
A must-read for anyone facing treatment of scoliosis  Oct 24, 1997
I read this book in 1994 right before I had surgery for scoliosis. I identified with the author's story so strongly that it brought tears to my eyes. Nancy Schommer, who had scoliosis herself, provides a personal, riveting first- person story along with plenty of factual information and advice. This book is perfect for teenagers with scoliosis who feel depressed, confused, and like there is no one who can identify with them. Schommer wore a brace and had surgery for scoliosis and provides accounts of both. The book also includes a list of reputable hospitals and foundations. Excellent, excellent, excellent!
