WHAT IS THE WORST/BEST CASE SCENARIO?
This question should help you to frame your expectations. Most cases of scoliosis can never be completely “cured,” but they can be successfully managed and controlled. You should know what degree of correction you might potentially expect, and also how the treatment might affect other aspects of your health, such as your pain levels, lung function, sleep quality, and physical activities.
It’s also important to know if there is a chance that the treatment will be ineffective, and to understand what the limitations of the treatment approach may be. Being aware of this possibility – as uncomfortable as it may sound – will be helpful in planning for and dealing with the worst-case scenario, if it comes up.
