Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns

Scoliosis in your age needs no further surgical treatment but really it may cause symptoms like pain .You should do new x ray for your lumbosacral spine or better to do MRI.

FOr my patients in just condition I will advise them to wear a supportive brace,Avoidance of any heavy activities,receiving muscle relaxant and strong analgesia when needed.
