In brief: Not definitely known

Mild to moderate scoliosis if flexible can sometimes lend itself to some chiropractic manipulation and management of pain if present.
Virtually no formal research exists documenting chiropractic's effectiveness in managing scoliosis. Some studies currently being conducted. Most treatment is done with bracing or surgery with spinal fusion.
