In brief: You don't
Typically, scoliosis is a deformity with no symptoms.
Sometimes a scoliosis may be secondary to a muscular spasm caused from a disc herniation. A chiropractor may offer relief for that type of issue but not from the typical type or idiopathic scoliosis.

In brief: Better options
See an orthopaedic surgeon trained in scoliosis.
Many cases do not require surgery, but orthopaedists are trained to tell which curves are at risk for progression. Manipulation therapy will not help such curves. Look for physicians who are members of the scoliosis research society, the pre-eminent group in the world that studies the causes and treatment of scoliosis.
