I have had scoliosis since 1994. One day when I came home from the school bus my mom noticed my neck was really messed up. My left ear was pratically touching my left shoulder. She immediately took me to the family chiropractor and they did xrays on my neck/back as well as straightened out my neck. After taking the xrays we found out I had scoliosis. I then went to the chiropractor for 2-3 times a week for 2-3 months for my back. They did manipulations on my back, pushed/pulled on my legs to correct the innequality and I would also lay on a machine that had rollers inside that would go up/down my back. I still have a leg length innequality where my right leg is appx. 2 inches longer than my left leg.Should i be getting this checked every few years or be doing nothing? I have done nothing since the 2-3 months in 1994.
Once in a while I will get pain in my left thigh where it hurts to stand, usually I get this at work and after sitting for a while it goes away. Another pain before the leg pain was After I had sat down for my 30 min break at work, when I got up I would have have pain in my low back for 10-15 minutes and then would be fine. Any ideas on what could be causing this?View Thread
