I am an adult scoliosis patient and I was in a lot of pain. I had consulted with three different doctors who all told me I was facing major surgery to relieve the pain. I had also developed drop foot, where the left side of my foot would just flop along. Someone suggested I try NUCCA….All of my pain is gone, my drop foot is gone, and I am pain free and I intend to keep doing this [treatments] for the rest of my life if need be instead of having any type of surgery. — Patient from Dallas, TX
