Spine issues.

So Edith's Dad was a bit insane. Apparently, when she was a child he used to lock her into an iron frame because she has a "spinal deformation". It's rumoured that the actual reason was because she was the first born child and wasn't male. Also, she wasn't the "beautiful, mindless" daughter they would've wanted.

I was having difficulty again with this, as I have no idea what post-victorian, iron back frames would've looked like and couldn't really find anything out about them. I'd like to think he made her one himself. Anyway, I could find some photos of modern back braces so I did a few drawings from those of the basic shapes of a back brace.
