I have pain on the side of my leg with an inflammed ITB band and quad muscle. My chiro and PT agree that it is nerve pain caused by an inpingment of a nerve in my spine due to scoliosis. The chiropractic is not working. What kind of doctor should I see? Has anyone had this experience?

Hi Shellylin...

You should see either an orthopaedic surgeon or neurosurgeon who specializes in treating adult scoliosis patients. You can find a list here:

I guess I should see a neruosurgeon since a nerve that is the problem. Thanks for the web site.
