WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF SUCCESS?
No method of scoliosis treatment has a 100% success rate. Scoliosis is perhaps the most complex spinal condition that a doctor can work with. We know relatively little about all of the causes and factors that influence scoliosis. If your doctor appears over-confident, this could be a warning sign. A good doctor will be honest and realistic about what to expect, and what the chances of success might be.
With some programs, the degree of improvement is influenced by the degree of participation on your part. Even the best-designed brace in the world does not help a patient who refuses to wear it. Similarly, exercises are only beneficial if they are performed regularly. Be sure to have an honest conversation regarding the level of commitment and dedication that you are willing to dedicate to your chosen treatment method; if you do not have the time required to follow through, it may be better to select a different approach.
