Scoliosis patients are no more likely than those with straight spines to have pain. I would recommend pilates/piyo/yoga for core strength.

How do you cure chronic upper back pain from years of poor posture and stress? The stress and anxiety absolutely killed the upper back/shoulder area.
Thoracic pain: 27 is awfully young to have chronic pain without a cause. My first inclination would be scheuermann's disease. Not really a disease as much as a genetic tendency for abnormal, painful discs and kyphosis (or a stooped posture). Occasionally disc herniations may also cause axial (back only) pain.
