 Hello. Thank you for posting.

For the benefit of our readers - Scoliosis is an abnormal curve in the spine. There are several types of scoliosis based on the cause and age when the curve develops.   In some cases, scoliosis is not painful, but there are certain types of scoliosis that can cause back pain, rib pain, neck pain, muscle spasms, and abdominal pain.  I think you should consider seeing a doctor.  Wearing a brace (again) and pain medication may be needed so you can function.
