Default surgery vs chiroprac

Hi there,

my name is nita.my sister got diagnosed with scoliosis just a year ago and the doctor recommended her to wear a brace.as a 15 yr old girl, i believed no one wants to wear them because of the down side such as bullied etc.And so she is not compliant in wearing them.Now that her cobb angle turns 40 degrees in the thoracolumbar area,the doc suggested to have the surgery done.

Now my questions are:
1.is there anyway to avoid the surgery by taking chiroprac treatment?
2.considering her age,will the angle worsen as the time passed if bracing is still in place?
3.from the age point of view, is it possible to manipulate the bone through this chiroprac session as the bone has not grow into a mature one?

ohh 1 more thing, i know this is probably not related to the topic but why is x-ray examination need to be carried out as minimal as possible? does it actually give a down side towards the disease?

Thanks for answering my questions
