New diagnosis

Hello,
I am new to this site. I just found out I have scoloiosis. I am 37 years old so this was quite a shock. I also just found out I have osteopenia in my right foot (very painful I must add). I cannot think of the name of the scoliosis but it is the S version. My rheumatologist is sending me to pain management and I called them and just to get approved to be seen takes 6 weeks so inbetween that time I am going to see if my primary care doc can help because man does this hurt!! Anyways, my actual question - what can I expect for treatment options? I want to get back to the old me. I am usually very active and want to get back to that but all this pain has taken it down a bit. I am a mom to 3 kids - the youngest is a very active toddler and I want to stay active. Is that still realistic? I am really hoping so. I want to start doing yoga but I am kinda terrified to start it on my own and mess something up. Right now I use tens units about 3-4 times a day and heating pads. Before this pain hit so hard I was also walking 3 miles a day but my calf muscles started really hurting in September.  The rheumatologist thinks I may have soft tissue damage from the scoloiosis there. Any thoughts??
