Back, Hip and Foot Pain

At 18 I endured a car accident that wrapped my car around a tree and broke my C2 vertebrae. The injury was stable, and I wore a hard brace for 10 weeks. Now 5 years later, at 23, my neck is fine but I experience pain in my mid to lower back everyday. I was told by a chiropractor last year that my spine has a curve (as a student athlete, scoliosis was never diagnosed) and my pelvis is slightly uneven and possibly fused. He attributed the fusion to an undiagnosed broken pelvis caused by my accident. My question: could the curvature in my back be injury related; and can chiropractic manipulation of my spine correct the curvature and/or the uneven pelvis?
Thank you.
