So I have scoliosis and was given a back brace but the brace presses spots that cause extreme pain. I already am in constant severe pain. I was told my type of scoliosis should be painless and I was taken to do an MRI and everything is normal. I'm supposed to get a new back brace to try and reduce the pain while wearing it but I'm thinking it isn't going to make a difference. My curve is at 30 degrees so it's not necessarily severe enough to need surgery. I was curious as to what you all think, if the newer brace doesn't make a difference in the pain it causes will they consider surgery or?
I'm also getting steroid injections which hopefully helps
