Scoliosis: As an adolescent, there is a greater likelihood of reducing spine curvature without surgery. Bracing does not usually work at age 37. The Schroth method is a form of physical therapy which can help reduce progression of curvature; by strengthening the inner muscles of the rib cage, this technique changes the shape of the upper trunk to correct any spinal abnormalities
