Hi, I was diagnosed with Idiopathic Scoliosis in 2005.

It was 32 degrees in my upper back and 24 degrees in my lower back, the doctors prescribed me with exercises. By doing stretching exercises for 3 hours/day 5 days/week I went for an other Xray 4 months later and it seems my muscles were holding my spine straighter. the readings were 16 degrees in my upper back and 13 degrees in my lower back. The pain was gone.

Just wanted to share my story.
