I don't want to interfere, but for someone who has a curve that is not large enough for surgery but is in a lot of pain - what other options are there besides alternative therapies? What will a scoliosis surgeon do for someone who doesn't need surgery? In Canada a scoliosis surgeon won't even see an adult whose curve is less than 50 degrees - because all they do is surgery.

Is it just this Scoliosis SOS that is so terrible, or all alternative therapies? I don't know anything about SOS because I am fairly certain we don't have it here.

I'm just asking because I'm in a similar boat - moderate curve, lots of pain, absolutely NO medical options.
