Why would they talk to her but not you?

All I know is its a curvature in the spine

Sometimes fixable by chiropractic
Sometimes surgery is needed

Good luck

My Husband has it so bad. That they said if it was fixed, he could be an inch or two taller

She's in residential, so I'm not there when the doctors sees her.

They may monitor it for awhile. Or she may have to have a brace to correct it if it's bad.

My toddler has it but they don't do anything until the teenage years generally.

Its a curvature in the spine. I was diagnosed at 16.. I've always had back pain, I was sent to a chiropractor but the pain always came back...

My son was diagnosed when he was six,he wore a brace for years.He had to wear it 23/7. It helped,I really wish they would have just done the surgery and got it over with.

My sister was fourteen or so. She wore a brace for a long time and had developed other problems since then. Skin issues from the brace, knee problems and hip pain.
She also lost a lot of weight and grew half a foot in a few months.
