    chest supported row would be good. I guess DB and cable rows are out of the question?

    Erm no, once you have it you always have it, unless you want to do surgery which ussually doesnt work, and you have to be at an extreme curve 30+ deg.

    my girlfriend has scoliosis, what kinds of treatments have they tried for you? hers is real bad, and they couldn't do much to fix it, plus the first chiro she went to when she was reall young downplayed it so much that the family thought it wasn't anything to worry about, but now its pretty bad and i think it needs extreme mesures to correct (if possible at all).

    i wouldn't think pull ups would be bad :dunno:

    Pullups are just hard on the shoulder, but I do spinal decompression for 3months twice a year for 3x a week, and back traction. When I was young I was at 12deg, went down to about 7deg, now about 9deg :wtc:
