In brief: No
There is no chiropractic treatment for scoliosis unless the scoliosis is from a spasm due to a disc herniation.

In brief: Depends...
First and foremost, your child should be seen by a pediatric orthopaedic surgeon specializing in scoliosis.
Once that has been done, a chiropractor can be utilized only as an adjunct to the treatment prescribed by the specialist.
