If anyone can help me, I have a curve of about 70 and I would like to know of a good doctor that can help me in the NY Metropolitan area for a nice deal. Its really got to get taken care of. Its not such an emergency being that there is no pain Cha"v involved, but see if you can assist me in this matter, Thank you!!

Hashem Bless you "BeChol Milli DeMeitav"

Sorry to sound harsh, but 70 degree curve *is* and emergency, and you might very possibly and probably will need surgery for such a curve. The spine can now be hitting your lungs and heart and can interfere with you breathing. I reccomend Dr. Farcy- he's an orthoedist and also does surgery. He is located in Boro Park somewhere, do a search for him I'm sure you'll fimd the address. Good Luck

Why don't you try a chiropractor that's near you? I had scoliosis, and I went to a chiropractor. It really helped. I didn't end up getting a brace or surgery. I don't think that mine was as severe as yours. But still, why not try it?
