Can mild scoliosis be cured completely? I've been told I have scoliosis, but it's not severe. Will treatment cure the problem completely, or will i always have some curvature? .

Can mild scoliosis be cured completely? I've been told I have scoliosis, but it's not severe. Will treatment cure the problem completely, or will i always have some curvature?

But the reason all that is ok is because mild curves are not really usually associated with problems. Even the incidence of back pain is similar in someone with a mild curve as it is in someone with a straight spine. Thanks. ...Read more
