Pull Up Bar for My Son's Back

Last year, my son was diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. He was not required to wear a back brace yet as the angle of his thoracic and lumbar spine haven't reached the critical degree yet. I am praying that he wouldn't need one ever. It would be too much of a hassle for him and it would surely make him look funny to his classmates. We are blaming genetics for his scoliosis. My husband's sisters and my husband's aunt have it.

Since he wasn't advised to wear a back brace, the orthopedic doctor suggested that he make regular hanging exercises on a monkey bar to stretch his spine. Our playground has a monkey bar installed but my son seldom leaves the house. I'm thinking of having once installed inside his room. Or we can probably get a doorwaypull up bar from a sports equipment house so we won't need to bore holes on his room's walls.

Help me decide. Do you have any suggestions?
