Our expert says:
It sounds like she is suffering from severe osteoperosis or another form of severe degenerative spinal disease.
Please do not take her to the chiropractor again, as manipulation of the spinal column can cause more problems. The only suggestion I have is that you consult with a physiotherapist to address muscle spasm and muscle wasting. The only exercise that she should be doing is swimming and exercise activities in a pool.
You can also consult a pain specialist. It is very important to use the right pain medication in order to alleviate her symptoms and not medication that will cause harm to her liver and stomach.
An orthropaedic surgeon can help with the correct diagnosis and also a pain management plan.
