Mild dextroscoliosis of the toracic spine

HI!
Can anyone give advise regarding my mild dextroscoliosis of the thoracic spine? I was diagnosed surprisingly with this 3 months ago. The doctor said that it is very minor and can be possibly corrected by using the body's other side more. I feel that my left arm is stronger and more muscular than the right. So should I be shifting to utilising my right arm more?

Also, will swimming be good for me? I've read in some posts that it's gonna strengthen my back more and would improve my condition.

Recently also, I enrolled in a gym to work out. Is weightlifting okay to do as long as the posture, and technique are correct? or is it a real no no?

I appreciate very much your help! anyone, thanks!
