Trailer In middl school I remember my best friend played forward for soccer and had so many plans with her future involving this sport! I remember for the most important game of the season she just collapsed and could not get up and it was such a scary experience.

Scoliosis Anatomical & Physiological Influences: Scoliosis is actually very common and you might know someone that has it because I know a couple people that do have it. Scoliosis involves the deformation of the spine. The spine is divided into 5 portions cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacrum, and coccyx and has 3 spinal curvatures which are cervical, thoracic, lumbar, and sacral (McKinley).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
