    Chiropratic Care

    Hi everyone!

    I am new to the site. I am 23 years old with 3 curves, all at pretty minor degrees. In the last 6 months, I have experienced severe back pain as well as pain, numbness and tingling throughout my limbs. I am finding that physio isn't doing very much. After one particular session of physio, I could move for 3 days. I have tried acupuncture and got a little bit of relief.

    My boss suggested that I see his chiropractor. Has anyone has success in pain relief and mobility through chiropractic treatment?

    Also, are there any medications out there that help with pain and mobility? I have prescription muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories that don't seem to do much.

    Thanks for any replies.

    Candy,

    I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 16 and was told to swim to strenghthen the muscles around the bones. It has been very helpful for me- I have been swimming for over 24 years.

    The other option is also to have massage therapy and try pilates. These are both great for relaxing the muscles and stretching.
