Hi I wanted to ask a few questions. I'm 29 female. Last year I had a car accident and saw a chiropractor after for low back pain I was having. I never really felt pain before the accident. Lately I've been noticing pain now in my thoracic and upper back as well. I started googling and came across spinal arthritis. I looked through my chiropractor folder and they wrote my curves are associated with spinal arthritis and ddd on two of my x rays. On two other parts of my back, they said may lead to spinal arthritis. No one ever mentioned this to me at the time. They just said you have degeneration let's start treatment... I've been really freaking out after reading how badly it progresses and people not being able to walk. I'd honestly rather die if it got to that point. Is there a way to keep this from progressing? I'm willing to keep up with physical therapy and chiro adjustments the rest of my life. I just am really scared of not being able to walk correctly and don't want to walk with a cane. It really frightens me. My pain is ok right now. If I do activities it worsens but if I lie down a bit it gets better.
