Lower back pain while lying or standing for long, neck and shoulder pain. Diagnosed with mild scoliosis. Can it be recurring?

I experience lower back pain if I lay down for long periods of time or if I stand in the same position for a long period of time (like washing dishes for instance). I changed my mattresses and that didn t help. I experience neck and shoulder pain too and I switched my pillows and that didn t help. I was diagnosed with a mild form of scoliosis in middle school. Could this be coming from this?

Thanks for the query. Lower back pain is common in patients with scoliosis. It could be due to early degenerative changes or back muscle dysfunction. Whats your age now? Scoliosis in upper back or lower back? I think you need to consult a spine specialist to know about the current status of the spine. If its a muscle dysfunction then regular stretching and exercise will help to get rid of pain.Thanks.
