Hello

If you don't have it, you are not likely to get it.

Scoliosis is not something that happens later, it is often present from childhood.

So I am not sure why you are concerned about this?

Can you clarify?

how to prolong it nor prevent it without having the surgery.
Doctor: DrRussMD, Board Certified Physician replied 2 years ago

You still have not stated you have it.

There is no way to prevent it as it is from birth, and there before anyone knows.

to prevent age related curvature of the spine relates to diet, exercise, and resistance weight training.

If you already have it, it often is not bad enough to require surgery, if it is, in conventional medicine surgery is the only solution in many cases. A brace may be tried first, particularly if the person is young enough.

An emerging treatment is done with PRP injections, platelet rich plasma, which is used to strengthen all of the ligaments of the cpoine.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
