Lourdes Ciccone Ritchie Has Scoliosis

Madonna‘s daughter Lourdes Ciccone Ritchie either has Scoliosis, or she’s going through some rather major extremes in order to stand taller as a model.

Lourdes Ciccone Ritchie Has Scoliosis

Lourdes was spotted wearing what appears to be a back brace, one that is often used in the treatment of Scoliosis.

Scoliosis is a medical condition in which a person’s spine is curved from side to side, shaped like an “s”, and may also be rotated. To adults it can be very painful. It is an abnormal lateral curvature of the spine.

    I had scoliosis but i had surgery on it and now have a metal rod graphted onto my spine, because my curve was about 80 degrees out of place. Im sort of glad though as i prefer this to having to wear a brace. Also i will have great posture forever now and all my friends are jelous.:L

    I have scoliosis and I wore a brace for a while in middle-school, I was extremely embarrassed of the brace and didn’t wear it as much as I should have…so my condition progressed and I had to have the spinal fusion surgery, everything was o.k. after the initial recovery of this surgery, but than a few years ago I began to get a sharp pain when jumping or moving specific ways. I got an x-ray and turned out one of the rods had warped slightly causing a screw to hit a nerve in my spine. So I had a second surgery to remove the rods. All is good now, and I have wonderful life that only keeps me from bungee jumping and participating in extreme sports (something I’m not too interested in anyways!) but if you have scoliosis take the steps to resolve your condition seriously!

    I think it would be great if Lourdes and other young female celebrities who have scoliosis to speak out about their experiences, struggled and hopefully their acceptance of taking the proper to maintain/resolve the condition. This may help other young women/girls to be more likely to wear their brace and also help other people not look at them so strangely and make them feel self-conscious, it is, after-all, a fairly common (but serious) condition.
