I am 62 yrs old. Have had scoliosis since my teens. It never bothered me much before but this year it's gotten worse. My doctor has sent me to physical therapy which didn't help much. I've gone to acupuncture which helped a little bit. This week, the pain in my lower back has gotten worse and I notice I'm leaning to my right. So now I have burning pain in my right side by front hip. Now my doctor is sending me to an osteopath. I just wondered what methods other people have used for pain relief. Anyone else try acupuncture? My acupuncturist says to be patient and that it will take a while but should improve.
