    Chiropractors - will it help ?

    I have had scolioscis for 20 years and my GP accepted that a Chiropactor may be able to help me - not on NHS of course I saw a Chiropractor last week who told me that he "MAY" be able to help me - no guarantees though ! I was wondering whether 20 years is too long to fix a major problem like this ?

The spine couldnt bear the weight. That would be the only logical explanation. 52 kg at 16 years is not healthy!! I
