Uneven Waist

My right waist is a lot curvier than my left one, almost as if there is more muscle on the left side. When I try to search for treatment suggestions online, I've only found people suggesting it's scoliosis. I've already gotten X-Rays and know I have a 12 degree curve. My doctor said its nothing serious because I'm not expected to grow anymore, but he didn't suggest any ways to fix my waist (the original reason why I came there). Any suggestions? I would prefer cheap methods, like daily exercises or small changes (such as changing sleeping positions), but I'll pursue physical therapy or a brace if it's the best way to fix this.

    Hi Christygirl
    your doctor or a physiotherapist would be better qualified to answer your question.
    for me with my scoliosis my waist was uneven because my pelvis was tipped...making the distance from my hip bone to my ribs shorter...a standing xray showed that.

    Hello Christygirll !
    You would need to discuss with your doctor.
    He would be able to know if specific exercises or PT would be helpful.
