The majority of cases of scoliosis do not require treatment.
Follow-up for Scoliosis
If your child is referred by the school for a scoliosis evaluation, you should make an appointment to see your pediatrician within the next month or so. Your pediatrician can then evaluate your child and decide whether they should be monitored with a repeat exam or referred to a specialist.
If your child is treated with a brace or surgery, you should follow the instructions provided by your doctor.
