Will my credit score get worse once I start paying charge offs?

I recently went broke over the past year and I allowed five credit cards become charge offs. I just checked my score for the first time this year and found my credit wasn’t that bad even with the charge offs. If I start settling these accounts through payments, will my credit score stay the same (or improve), or is there a chance it will still get worse? (Assuming I do nothing else to hurt my credit)
