32 Famous People with Scoliosis

List of Famous People with Scoliosis, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Scoliosis is a condition in which an individual's spine is curved into an “S” or a “?” rather than being straight. Scoliosis is usually diagnosed in children and adolescents. It can be treated with physical therapy, surgery, bracing, stretching and exercise.

Who is the most famous person who has scoliosis? Sara Michelle Gellar tops our list. The “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” star was diagnosed with scoliosis when she was growing up and she still suffers from the condition. Gellar runs on a treadmill and does Pilates to help alleviate the symptoms of scoliosis. Other famous actresses with scoliosis include “Kill Bill” star Daryl Hannah, “American Psycho” actress Chloe Sevigny and “Enlightened” star Laura Dern.

Just because an individual has scoliosis, doesn't mean that they can't participate in sports. Several Olympians have been diagnosed with scoliosis including Janet Evans, Maritza Carreia and Usain Bolt. Tennis star James Blake also has the condition. Other people with scoliosis include Sex Pistols front man Johnny Lydon, General Douglas McArthur and cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
