My pain is not due to an injury as far as I know.I did once break my coccyx due to a bad fall.This might account for the arthritis to some extent.The rest is mostly age related,I believe.The scoliosis is a hereditary factor.My dad had it,one of my two brothers has it as well as one of my two daughters.I have had some relief due to physical therapy as well as injections.Both bring temporary relief.
