Hi everyone. I just want to ask a few questions. I'm 29 and have been having back pain constantly for a year now. It feels like intense cramps in the spine. I saw a chiropractor and we did x rays which showed I have a functional (fixable and not from birth) scoliosis. My lower back goes to right and my thoracic goes to the left. He said there wasn't any degeneration or arthritic changes. I went to him for a few months but didn't see any results. I just started seeing a new chiropractor who is doing "meningeal release" on me. He said my spine is severely twisted, bones are growing close, and thinks this is the only thing that will untwist it. He looked at my x rays and said I had no degeneration. He said he was worried about my facet joints but was 90 percent sure there was no damage. A week later I asked him what would be wrong with my facet joints. He said arthritis. I said would you see that on x rays and he said yes. But I'm wondering why he said he was worried about the facet joints in the first place. My question is.. would arthritis have picked up on the fifteen x rays I did even if it's early? The first chiro said no arthritis changes as well. I'm always super worried about arthritis because it isn't curable. I just started taking glucosamine and msm because I heard it can reverse it if it's early but I don't buy into a lot of the internet cures. The pain gets horrendous. Would early oa cause this much pain? He said he thinks i'm feeling the stress of the curves. Thank you
