Loss of Cervical Curve in Neck

Hi! I have had sinus issues for the past 3 years. I seem to always get sick with viruses, sinus infections, etc. I decided to go see a chiropractor b/c I am getting tired of my doctors not being able to fix me!

I went to a chiropractor and he did an x-ray of my neck only (not sure why he didn't x-ray my back since I have a history of scoliosis in my family!) He said that the x-ray showed loss of cervical curve in my neck. His idea for treatment was to do adjustments to "retrain" my posture (I have bad posture) so that my neck would get back to normal and relieve some of the issues I've been having.

Does this sound like the proper treatment? I've never been to a chiropractor before this and I am a little skeptical of the treatment. He said I would need 24 visits....but it is expensive!

Thanks for any help you can give me!
