Scheuermann's Disease is a spinal (skeletal) disease that typically presents itself in children during adolescence. It is often noted by an accentuated curvature, or "hunched back" and if left untreated, may lead to significant health complications later in life.
Author’s note: My name is Doug Strott and I was diagnosed with Scheuermann’s Disease at the age of 17. This was much too late in life for non-invasive treatment options to work effectively. All of the content is a record of my experiences and is not to be taken as recommendations or advice.
**The primary site for the charity, The Scheuermann's Disease Fund of the Pittsburgh Foundation, is under construction at www.sdfund.org and is expected to be completed soon. Please feel free to visit and see the future location of The Scheuermann's Disease Fund!!
