The x-ray shows Carly’s spine to be almost perfectly straight, but the family will not know the exact degree it was corrected to until a follow up in three months time.

“Carly is now recovering,” Joanne said. “She is walking around but on pain medication. I can’t wait to see her be able to join in with all her friends and be more active.

“It was so bad before she couldn’t even walk to the end of the road, she was so crooked. Now she has a new lease of life.”
