Scoliosis is a structural problem of the spinal column causing a rotational abnormality and a curve of the spine.
No amount of chiropractic care can change this curve. The only way to prevent progression and straighten the curve is through surgery. However, depending on the curve, not everyone necessarily needs a surgical procedure to correct it.

There are patients who present with a chiropractic diagnosis of scoliosis, but after radiographic evaluation do not fit the diagnostic criteria of scoliosis. Some of these curves that are called "scoliosis" are postural, due to deconditioning or acute back pain. These minimal curves do respond with non-operative measures, whether it be chiropractic, physical therapy, medication, or home exercise.

In brief: Comprehensive Care
Scoliosis care has had mixed results over the years.
Recently, there have been some new thoughts including mirror image chiropractic adjustments, dural adhesions, vibration, traction, etc. This type of care takes consistent commitment to achieve the results. Check out the Clear Institute in Minnesota for more information.

Scoliosis can be painful and cause other problems as well.
You should see an orthopedic specialist to determine the degree of curve and what treatments are available. Chiropractic can offer little help in this condition except the short term good feeling from a deep massage.
