On physiotherapy for scoliosis. Have clicking in the groin area. Pain worsens on lifting weights. No relief after epidurals

I have scoliosis 50 degree curve and am doing physical therapy , however, I have clicking in the groin area. Therapist uses weights on my ankle to strenghten my muscles in the groin and hip area. I still have pain, 2 1/2 months of therapy. Are weights appropriate; sometimes my pain feels worse with weights. Is there anything else I can be doing. Had 2 epidurals which didn t give me much relief. Thank you.

Orthopaedic Surgeon 's  Response
physiotherapy is useful for the pain that some patients with scoliosis suffer but it will have no structural effect on the curvature in your back at all. if your curve is 50 degrees and your are in adolescence your are in the range where we would consider surgical intervention and so your should seek the advice of a spinal surgeon / orthopaedist.
