Any way that you can gain information and insight into your specific functional or structural matters is important and necessary for your short and long term longevity. Pain is many times the last signal that comes to our consciousness before we understand it's time to take your body seriously. Chiropractors are specifically and well trained to help you evaluate and recommend ways of helping you overcome challenges and achieve maximum function, if you're willing to put the work into yourself and make, sometimes, hard but necessary changes in your behaviors. Hope that helps.
Low back pain is not necessarily indicative of scoliosis. It could be a number of factors. Chiropractic is a great place to start on the road to recovery.
If you are having pain radiating down your leg, you may have sciatica. A chiropractic physician is the right doctor to see for that condition. If it is not sciatica, the Chiropractor should be able to arrive at an accurate diagnosis and tell you the proper treatment plan.
I hope you find this helpful.

Take care and be well,

Your leg pain may be caused from your back. The nerves in your back control your leg function. So, if your scoliosis is causing stress in the lumbar spine, you may find a doctor of chiropractic adjustment beneficial to your leg pain and back tightness.
You have leg pain, but should you see a chiropractor for scoliosis? No. You should see a chiropractor for pelvis and spine balance and possibly your leg pain will improve and over extended period of proper corrective care your scoliosis may improve. The two issues may or may not be related but you should be clear as to what your expectations are and for what exactly you are going to the chiropractor for.
I have helped many patients with scoliosis to live either without pain or with less pain naturally. I am even seeing a patient who years ago had Harrington rods implanted in her spine. She has told me that with chiropractic care she lives with much less pain and can exercise and do the things she wants to do.
I hope that you can find good chiropractor to help you. It is the best choice for your leg pain.

As chiropractors can do great work with scoliosis, Iā€™d definitely get an evaluation by one for your leg pain.
You should be examined to see if the scoliosis is associated with the leg pain. Often, scoliosis causes other types of problems such as disc issues.
Doctors of Chiropractic (DC) are licensed doctors who does diagnosis and either preforms and/or recommends treatment. That includes all areas of the neuromuscular system. The question is what is causing the problem with the area and that requires diagnosis. Diagnosis can't be done without an examination. If the cause is appropriate and responsive to conservative care then Chiropractic care with it's many therapeutic treatments is important and appropriate. Even if the problem has a permanent and/or structural component the treatments may still help, but may not totally eliminate the underlying cause. Don't wait to have the examination, as the sooner the problems is detected and treated the better.
That is two separate questions. Yes you can see a chiropractor for leg pain. And yes you can see a chiropractor for scoliosis.
Yes, seeking Chiropractic is a great 1st choice when you have pain. Chiropractors are also a great choice for scoliosis treatment.
Typically, medical treatment of leg pain varies depending on the diagnosis...Chiropractors use gentle and effective spinal adjustments to align your spine, which relieves the pressure from the nerves, allowing the nervous system to function, as it should, alleviating the leg pain.
