In brief: Sometimes
Curvatures can cause backache.
Many other things, can, too, which may/may not be directly related to the curvature.Your best bet may be to start with a dr. who is NOT a surgeon.Osteopathic drs. tend to use non-invasive diagnostics & treatments like manipulation to balance/strengthen muscles,take pressure off nerves, prolotherapy to strengthen weak ligaments, etc. which may be the real cause of pain

In brief: Yes
Strongly suggest you see a back surgeon.
Some are orthopedists who specialize in the back. Some are neurosurgeons and sometimes they work in pairs together.
