Went to chiropractor to take a more "natural" approach towards pain..was told in addition to all my other ailments I have "severe" 42 degree scoliosis,pelvic tilt and neurological impingement,complete loss of neck curve and degenerative disc dx and may need surgery..I am going to try to see what the chiropractor can do through adjustments and physical therapy, surgery is a last resort,of course,in my case, have had bad luck in that arena..but 42 degrees! They found something in my 11 yr old Daughter so getting her checked out..

I am sorry that your good intentions turned out this way. Good idea to check out your daughter too. I have complete loss of neck curve as well, and a good chiropractor can help with this.

Good luck to you and your daughter. You are in my prayers.

There is a PT method called Schroth:

If you do seek out PT/Chiro assistance, make sure they are familiar with either this method or are otherwise well trained regarding scholiosis. What PT/Chiro works with a normal spine can cause injuries for someone with scoliosis.

Also, if you have a 42 degree curve and didn't know it until you saw this Chiro, you should go to an MD who can order a set of scoliosis x-rays (there's a full-spine x-ray and a radiologist will calculate the curve) -- the details can be relevant.

Also check out:
C4-T4 Scoliosis (disk degeneration, stenosis, narrowed neuroforamen, bone spurs), RT hip and SI joint damage from car accident. Also, pectus excavatum, supraventricular tacycardia and mitral valve prolapse syndrome.
Current meds: Ultram ER 300mg daily, breakthrough - hydrocodone 10-15mg, or oxycodone 5-7.5mg. .25-.5mg ativan as needed for sleep, Verapamil 240mg SR (for tachycardia). [/gray
