Hello from JustAnswer.

Has he had any x-rays of the spine?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
Unfortunately No
Expert:  Dr. D. Love replied 11 months ago.

Well, the usual next step would be obtaining s-rays of the spine. The x-rays can give far more information than can be obtained from visual observation. The recommendations for management are based on the findings on the x-rays, as well as the rate of any changes that occur over time.

The interventions that would be considered would be using a brace to stabilize and support the spine or surgery to straighten the spine as much as possible.

There are other treatments that can be used to help ease any symptoms that may be present, such as anti-inflammatory medicines for back pain or muscle relaxers for muscle spasm.

Therefore, the next step would be x-rays of the spine that in turn will guide the determination of the best treatment option.

Is there any further information that would be helpful?
