When back pain is present with
scoliosis, it may be that the curve in the spine is causing stress and pressure on the spinal discs, nerves, muscles, ligaments, or facet joints. It is not usually caused by
the curve itself. Some people may use nonprescription medicines such as aspirin
and ibuprofen to treat back pain. While these medicines may relieve symptoms of
back pain temporarily, they do not heal scoliosis or back injuries, nor do they
stop the pain from coming back.
