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. At the time of my diagnosis (1981), information on Scheuermann’s Disease was scarce and extremely difficult to find. In addition, I have been diagnosed with an unknown genetic, aggressive form of osteoarthritis that is quickly degrading every level of my spine. Hopefully, this site will make it easier for people to access information on this debilitating disease. All of the content is simply a record of my experiences and is not to be taken as recommendations or advice.
