The purpose of this section is to help you understand how to approach your doctor, know what questions to ask, and be aware of potential warning signs that could indicate that a doctor might not be the best possible choice for pursuing scoliosis treatment. When speaking with a doctor, always be courteous and respectful but direct; trust your instincts and intuition. You should never feel like you are being pressured into making a decision you are not comfortable with, and all of your questions should be answered to your satisfaction before you proceed with the treatment you have chosen.
Below you can find a list of sample questions to ask your doctor. Every question might not apply in every case; you should read through this list and select the ones that are important to you. Furthermore, you should take a moment before meeting with your doctor and write down any additional questions, not on this list, that you would like answered.
