Keep moving, the more you move the better off you are despite the pain. Have you considered hydro therapy. Joining an exercise class that uses a pool. The buoyancy from water relieves stress on the joints and allows a person to get in physical activity without it feeling painful. Try changing your anti-inflammatory or pain meds. The next step would be scoliosis surgery if nothing else works.
