Hi everyone!!!

Hello guys! My name is Jade and even if i am a health freak, i think i have problems on my back. I haven't seen a doctor yet but i know something is wrong with it. I am doing some research on scoliosis and other back related illnesses and it brought me on this forum. I hope i can get more information on what i really have and have more friends to talk to.


  • Be patient. It seems like often when you see your primary care doctor, they may have you get x-rays and/or take meds., and/or try physical therapy before getting an MRI. Then you might get a referral to a doctor. Things happen differently for each person. There is a lot of great info on here - both the people and the more technical parts.

    Good luck!
