A 38-year-old male asked:

Second opinion yes: Nice idea to show us the xray very useful
not a very bad curve in a 38 year old person i would definitely seek another opinion
upper back pain can be very hard to treat
but is not usually indicative of serious pathology and i would tend to doubt that the curve has much to do with it / seek out an orthopedic spine specalist perhaps best of luck with this problem.
