Fell from horse as well
Read your post with interest. My daughter also fell from a horse at 9 1/2 and it was then (looking at a badly scrapped back) that we noticed her shoulder blade jutting out. After x-rays, cat scans - they could find nothing causing the shoulder blade. I was told to keep an eye on her back though, which I did - 18 months later I noticed the curve (age 11) and after seeing specialist discovered her scoliosis. We are convinced that it all started from the fall from the horse (a bad fall from a galloping horse that took off!).
I was advised by well meaning friends to see an Osteopath and they stated that if caught early enough they could correct the "over pulling" muscles that were causing the Scoliosis. Unfortunately they also recommended Accupuncture to go a long with this and 3 visits a week. I didn't follow through - although very kind and helpful - I couldn't afford the 3 visits a week and secondly my daughter would have nothing to do with the accupuncture. I don't know if any of that helps you, but I thought I would just suggest it for you to have a look into.
