In brief: Depends

The treatment of scoliosis first requires a thorough evaluation and special x-rays.
Treatment options range from simple back bracing to complex surgical treatments. The treatment type depends upon the degree of the spinal curvature and the severity of symptoms.

In brief: Depends

It depends on how "bad" the curve is .
..You require an x-ray to really assess the severity of your curve...So see your orthopaedic spine specialist.
