Re: mild dextroscoliosis of the thoracic vertebrae

You have a mild curve in the back that goes to the right. With time there is a potential of developing arthritis due to the abnormal curve. Abnormal curve = abnormal wear. Go see a chiropractor who can take a look at this and give an idea of which exercises to do. Most importantly is maintaining motion by getting chiropractic adjustments to the area. Find a chiropractor that treats neuromuskuloskeletal conditions. Do not go to anyone who tells you you need a year of care or need to come in for more than 20 visits. In my office, we would have this stablised in 12 visits and then we maintain this correction by seeing you 1X every 1-2 months. Just an estimate.
