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.

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.
