iMAGING RESULTS ARE INERESTING, BUT PATTERN OF SYMPTOMS IS NEEDED. IF NO PAIN, NO INTERVESTIONS EXCEPT CORE STRENGTHENING EXERCISES. THE LEVOSCOLIOSIS WILL GET WORSE WITH TIME. BUT SOME PEOPLE DONT HAVE SYMPTOMS. FOR AM STIFFNESS AN NSAID MAY HELP. FOR PAIN WITH TURN/TWIST IT COULD BE DISC; FOR PAIN WORSENING WITH ACTIVITY IT LIKELY IS THE SCOLIOSIS
