WHAT CAN I DO TO IMPROVE THE CHANCES OF SUCCESS?
Some treatment approaches are passive; something that the doctor does to the patient, and there is very little that the patient can do to actively participate or get involved. In wearing a brace, for example, the patient can ensure that they don the brace properly and wear it for the recommended number of hours, but can do little else to improve their chances of success. With exercise-based approaches to scoliosis, the answer to this question is more evident: doing the exercises correctly and faithfully will certainly improve the chances of success. There may be other important considerations, regarding activities of daily living, workstation ergonomics, restrictions in sports or other activities, or additional potential influences that must be taken into account. Be sure to understand in advance what you can do personally to help (or hinder) your chances for success.
