2 yo female baby with congenital kyphosis in the lumbar region since birth. Progressively increasing. No neurological deficits. MRI shows no cord abnormalities. Kyphosis 50 degrees. Segmentation anomaly. Fusion of bodies of L1to L4 bodies. What is the best treatment option?
I am wondering what the consensus is for chiropractic care BEFORE cervical surgery? Seems like it could make things better but, given the anatomy with much less "tolerance" than in the low back, it could also make things much worse quickly.

17yo elite football player had an episode of transit quadriplegia. Could barely move hands/legs for ~1min but then got substantially better. Was seen at ER and MRI showed congenital stenosis with 6 1/2 mm space for the cord at C3-4 and 7mm at C4-5 and C5-6. No cord signal changes seen. Small annular tear at C3-4. He is requesting clearance to return to tackle football. Would you clear him or tell him he can no longer participate in contact sports?
