Neck twisted to the right, can this be causing my problems?

Hi, I've suffered from chronic problems for many years now. First a chronic pain on my left side, being that the reason I can't sleep on my left side, Recently a lot of chronic digestive problems.

I went to a chiropractor for the first time 1 month ago. I had some X rays which show that my neck is twisted to the right (

The chiropractor said this is likely the cause of my problems, but I'm skeptical, although I would like to believe her.

Funny thing is the only time I had a serious accident was back when I was 11 years old when I fell from my bicycle on my left side of the head, leaving me unconscious.

Can anyone tell me what you think? Is this something reasonable? How long should I have chiropractic adjustments to find out if it helps? I've tried so many things over I fear to start something that will make me more uncomfortable without helping.

Thanks a lot, and happy new year to everyone :)

Helps strengthen the kneecap mechanism by applying pressure on the tendon above the kneecap as well. This tends to reduce the forces of the quadriceps on the patella tendon and erosion of the under surface of the kneecap due to a possible misalignment of the quadriceps (Q-angle).
