Scoliosis back pain: There are many causes for back and hip pain, sometimes not as obvious as the curve in your spine on x-ray. Get a good evaluation 2 see if your spine is truly the problem causing the pain. Often, buttock-type hip pain comes from l4-s1, but groin hip pain comes from the hip joint itself and has nothing to do with the spine, even if the pictures look bad. Good docs can find ur true pain source. Thx!
