Peterborough pianist given new hope through therapy
Jade Wise, from Newborough, was diagnosed with Scoliosis after she complained of suffering from back pain after she played the piano for long periods of time in her quest to become a musician, The Peterborough Telegraph reports.
However, life-changing surgery and a specialist form of physiotherapy has helped the 17-year-old on her way to eventually turning her passion for tinkling the ivories into a full-time career.
Jade told the news provider: "I had not hurt or damaged my back so I really couldn't see the reasons for the horrendous pain I felt. Worse of all, I was scared that I may have had to give up the piano, as the pain only really started when I was playing.”
Scoliosis is a curvature of the spine which can range from slight to severe and according to the NHS affects three to four children out of every 1,000.
Luckily for Jade she has been able to begin her recovery and get back to her passion of playing the piano.
