    That is excellent! Congratulations to her and your family on this.

    Oh poor baby Sparky monkey. I hope he feels much better after the surgery, Jess.

    And I hope you get some shot into your hip. That sounds crazy off the hook if it hurts when you don't do anything.

    That's a matter of how the facts roll up.

    In any case, everything must be on the table for criticism if society is to ever advance. It is the only way to weed out bad ideas.

    Chiro has been shown to help with some lower back pain but is no more effective than other PT. They should never be working on children with scoliosis because they have no relevant training.

    I am assuming your mother has no training in this field. So everything she is telling you is from the chiro. Less than worthless.
