SAUK is the only UK wide patient support organisation for people with scoliosis and their families. Our aim is to provide advice, support, and information to people affected by scoliosis and their families and raise awareness of scoliosis among health professionals and the general public.
Scoliosis is a condition where the spine twists and curves to the side. It can affect people of any age, from babies to adults, but most often starts in children aged 10-15.
Scoliosis doesn't normally improve without treatment, but it isn't usually a sign of anything serious and treatment isn't always needed if it's mild.
We do this so that we can be there for people with scoliosis and those close to them, help to reduce feelings of isolation, poor body image, inadequate care, needless pain, worry, fear and lack of information.
Our team members work hard to answer calls and enquiries about scoliosis, provide support for member's and raise funds for the organisation.
