I am 36 and I have been having back pain for a long time. I was diagnosed with scoliosis in the 5th grade and it didn't bother me much until a few years ago. I now have pain everyday and I went to a specialist friday. The specialist said I have a 51 degree angle (thoracic) and 32 degree angle lumbar, he sugested spinal fusion from top to bottom anterior and posterior. i go for a 2nd opinion in my. i am really scared of this option but it doesn't look as if I have any left. i have done chiropractic, acupunture, therapy, facet and trigger point injetions, and meds nothing seems to help. I just want some relief.
