Even in severe cases that require surgery, the curvature cannot be completely reversed. Bracing, exercises and chiropractic treatment may help with pain relief.
In adults with a history of scoliosis as a child, the spine tends to degenerate faster than it otherwise would. Disc degeneration and facet arthritis become advanced and sometimes treatment could be necessary to treat the pain associated with this degeneration. Chiropractic manipulations play a key role in maintaining the function of the spine and pain management procedures can help control more severe pain and stubborn pain that is not responsive to spinal adjustments. Pain management procedures like medial branch blocks, radiofrequency ablation, and epidural steroid injections can relieve pain associated with scoliosis in the aging adult.
