The question I have is this. What is the generally accepted treatment for scoliosis. Can I not go for surgery. Are there any medicines to treat or alleviate my condition.

Thank you for reading.

Re: Scoliosis
Is yours extreme? Has surgery been offered? Nothing changes the curvature, but exercise in general can help strengthen if there is weakness.

Re: Scoliosis
Thank you for replying. No surgery was not offered. Only when movement up and down the stairs tend to exacerbate the discomfort of pain. Am taking a supplement but doesn't seem to do much. Do not take any painkillers. A podiatrist offered some solutions on footwear that is all. It looks like a chronic condition without options to address the symptoms.

Re: Scoliosis
They generally don't do surgery for this on adults. Have you tried PT? That might help as it could level your hips. I'd also investigate various exercise regimens. A trainer may be able to offer some suggestions if your doctor can't.

Re: Scoliosis
Thanks your reply. Yes PT was suggested by one of the doctors. I am also on that regimen now. PT is conducted thrice a week at the hospital.
