In brief: Core strengthening

Core strengthening and stretching exercises can be generally helpful, but they have not been shown to help the size of the scoliosis itself.
So e patients with increased lumbar lordosis will have subtle hip flexion contractors and so stretching out the hips is important. Thank you for your question.
