In brief: Early and often care

Although there has been no progression yet, with your daughter at age 10 and either early in puberty or not even entering puberty yet, now is the time to be very aggressive about monitoring for changes and intervening early.
This is not a little 10 degree curve - she is already at 45, and you don't want much progression before you would get agressive with early therapies. See spine doctor often!

This is a problem for a pediatric specialist and not a chiropracter!
