In brief: No

Spine curvature under 10 degrees is considered within normal anatomic variation and is typically not clinically detected unless someone is looking for it.
If it is symptomatic therapy may help with symptoms but it will not reverse the curvature. Typically this level of curvature is not symptomatic.

In brief: 57 or 5-7?

5-7 degree scoliosis as in five to seven degree or between five and seven degrees, is not even considered scoliosis but a spinal asymmetry.
57 degrees as in fifty seven is scoliosis in surgical range, and only surgery will cure it.
