My family physician told me my curve would not progress, and it shouldn't cause pain... but in the last few years it has hurt major and seemed to increase. But she wouldn't x-ray me because I didn't have insurance. all she did was put me on naprosyn. I want to find a new physician but don't know how to choose one educated in scoliosis. this woman doesn't seem to know anything important about the prognosis or treatment. the naprosyn doesn't even help with the pain anymore, it barely helped before... it was just enough to take the edge of of the lower back and carpal tunnel pain.
