Physiotherapy: stretching exercise, muscle strengthening exercise and breathing exercise assigned by physiotherapist would help reduce recurrence and minimize complications.

Chiropractic adjustment: chiropractor would correct the mal-aligned spine by means of biomechanical lever concepts.

Back orthosis: daily use can prevent scoliosis from fast-worsening
