Simon has two twists in his spine due to severe scoliosis, an abnormal curvature of the spine. It has no cure but can be treated when diagnosed at an early age. Whilst young girls in Australia are checked at school for signs of the disorder, boys are not usually checked and Simon was not diagnosed until adulthood. Compensating for his affected spine  his body naturally refined the muscles on his front, helping reduce the severity of his chronic back problems.
