    2peanuts posted:
    I have a slight spot of scoliosis. My husband will crack my back when its out. Ive been doing this for the past 23 years. Since I was a little girl. 2 nights ago after he cracked it, I developed a small but very sore spot on one of my vertebraes that is swollen now. my whole lower back hurts now and my hips now hurt and its hard to walk. Ive taken advil but not really chnaging much. Should I see a dr? Anyone have an idea what this could be? Its never happened before.
