This teen had a 70 degree curve in her spine and can now do the splits

Most people become self-conscious about their looks during their teen years. It is the time of your life when even the smallest insult can feel like the worst thing anyone could ever say to you. One teenager, Lily Sidebottom, began standing out from her friends in a way that couldn’t be helped; her spine started to curve due to scoliosis. Lily’s had affected her so much that by the time she was 15 her spine had a 70-degree curve in it. One life-changing operation later, and she could do splits.

Lily Sidebottom from the UK was an average teenager, until something started going wrong with her body. When she should have been at her healthiest, something wasn’t right inside, and soon it was clear from the outside too. As she continued growing, her spine began to curve, and by the time she was 15 years old she had a 70-degree sideways curve in her back. Standing out is not something most teenagers want to do, so life for Lily got tougher when her curved spine became more and more noticeable.
