Usain Bolt is a remarkable individual: He is an eight-time Olympic gold medal winner and the holder of world records in the 100 meter dash, the 200 meter dash and the 4 x 100 meters relay. He is the fastest, most decorated sprinter in history and a living athletic legend. But what’s most remarkable about Usain Bolt is the fact that he’s accomplished all of this with scoliosis.
Scoliosis symptoms can be obvious and not-so obvious, which is why so many people live with the condition but go undiagnosed for such a long time. The fact is that people don’t always know what to look for. If you are concerned that you or someone you care about may have scoliosis, here are seven scoliosis symptoms you should be aware of.

Traditional scoliosis treatment options for teens also tend to negatively impact the ability to make the most of what should be a positive and memorable time.
