Models seem to be flawless in every way, right?! Whether they have perfectly toned bodies or naturally gorgeous faces, it's like they have it all!
And Martha Hunt, one of the new Victoria's Secret Angels and bosom buddy of Taylor Swift, is one of them. But she has a not-so-secret secret: She struggles with Scoliosis, a curvature of the spine that can often be very painful. But Hunt doesn't let her diagnosis affect her or her career the way it could. In fact, she makes exercise a top priority to stave off the pain.
📚📚Scoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the normally straight vertical line of the spine.
There are many types and causes of scoliosis, including:
👉🏽Neuromuscular scoliosis. 👉🏽Degenerative scoliosis. 👉🏽Idiopathic scoliosis.
Treatments for scoliosis include:
🏨Braces- The purpose of bracing is to halt progression of the curve. It may provide a temporary correction, but usually the curve will assume its original magnitude when bracing is eliminated. 🏨Surgery- Scoliosis surgery usually involves joining the vertebrae together permanently-- called spinal fusion.
