Female 22 Pain in lower back into left hip with

Patient : Female. 22. Pain in lower back into left hip with occasional radiating pain down left leg. Inability to stand, sit, walk, or perform any physical activity for more than 5 minutes. Worsens with bending, squatting, reaching, twisting,  or prolonged standing, sitting, walking, etc. Diagnosed with degenerative scoliosis (8° curviture) in early 2014 with x-ray. Prescribed muscle relaxers and opiate pain medication which provided no relief. Physical therapy worsened pain, but did reveal temporary pain relieving positions. Electrotherapy did not provide relief. Have recently experienced same pain on right side. Primary care doctor and physical therapist have no answers and say the scoliosis should not cause this amount of pain.
