Chiropractic treatment for....

Chiropractic treatment for cervical straighten and the start of scoliosis?? My neck as a 6°curve instead of the 45° curve and my back is starting to curve between my shoulder blades pushing my right shoulder up higher then left. This is all according to my chiropractor. I went to my doctor 2 years ago for neck pains (which I still have) and was told it was nothing more then muscle issues and was given muscle relaxers that never helped and that was it. So my question is will this work as my chiropractor says???

    It will take some time to get your spine back in proper alignment, and you'll need to build strength in your back/neck/shoulders so the muscles will work to keep everything in line. When I started going several months ago, I was initially told it would likely take a year of adjustments to get me back in order. Each time you're adjusted, things move about the width of a hair.
