My mother told me to give this a try and see if anyone can give me some advice about scoliosis. I am 23 years old and I don't know yet what my curves are but, I have a really bad time with my ribs "popping out of place" on my left side.They knock the air out of me and I usually have to go to the chiropractor to get them to put the rib head back in.
Long story short, I have an appointment to see an orthopedic surgeon here in Tulsa, OK in June to get evaluated. My chiropractor has pretty much got my front ribs to stop making me feel like I am having a heart attack and the rest of my back feeling good. Which I am down to going to him when I have an episode. He suggests that I look into some exercises and maybe SpineCor. I am really interested in it, but since I am an adult, do you think it is worth the time? I would rather not be in pain and attempt to fix as much as I can without surgery. I have seen some case studies for children and it seems like the general idea of it would work. I know since the adult growth plates have cease, will the muscles basically be placing the spine back into position as much as possible?
If anyone has any stories of using or heard of anyone using it that is an adult, I would love some advice. I just need support. My mom had horrible scoliosis and I want to do something to help myself not get that bad.
