In brief: Depends
Mild postural deformity can be improved by exercises stressing strength and position.
Larger deformities generally do not respond to this. Sometimes deformities will progress regardless of treatment. All deformities tend to stiffen with age. Some also continue to worsen with aging.

In brief: Depends
If you have a true, structural deformity of the spine, only surgery can correct that.
Many mild deformities certainly don't warrant that. If there is a non structural component to the problem, this can be treated non operatively based upon the problem. For example physical therapy for poor poetical muscle balance or a shoe lift for leg length discrepancy, etc. Thank you for the question.

In brief: Scoliosis or kyphosi
Sugery is the only way to straighten scoliosis.
Brace keep curves from gettingcworse but they usually dont straighten it unless you are the brace.
