View Full Version : Any help for mild scoliosis or herniated disks?
08-22-2008, 11:02 AM
My roommate and good friend, T, has both of these conditions. I'd like to hear any raw success stories to share some hope with her... she in convinced that eventually surgery will be her only option, and lives with constant pain now.
She is 31 and mother of two.

I have a compound curve scoliosis a curve to the side and a backward curve at the lower back area (mine curves out where it is supposed to curve in). I have been consistently going to a GREAT chiropractor now for over a year. For the first 2 months I was going at least once a week, now I only go once a month for maintenance. They have gotten my side curve down to a slight lean. But I know that I will need to continue to use chiropractic probably for the rest of my life, but I can live with once a month. My pain is almost nonexistent most days but I REALLY see an increase in my pain level if I'm not exercising. I don't do strenuous exercise, I just walk 30 minutes usually at least 5 days a week then do about 5-10 min. of stretching. THIS REALLY HELPS. If she isn't going to try chiropractic I bet she will see improvement by just adding daily exercise.
PS - I am a 38 yr. old mother of two.

I work at a chiro office. I would suggest that your friend go to a chiropractor with a DRX9000 machine. We have treated many many patients with herniated disks with this machine. It's a great no-surgery option. It gently pulls apart the vertebrae so the disk can get back in its spot and get healthy again. Surgery would be a very very VERY last resort for something like a herniated disk. There are other safer options !
