Scoliosis and back pain with spasms

Hello!

Lookin for some help for my husband.He's been told by his allopathic doctor that he has some minor scoliosis and that he just has to accept that his back will "go out" multiple times a year. It's very difficult when his back goes out, as he can't work and loses income, not to mention the pain and stress on our family. He's currently having one of his flare-ups of extreme back pain and muscle spasms. We are looking for anything that can help with the spasms now,as well as help for his back in general. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. He filled out the following questionnaire:

Thank you for your reply. I don't have calc phos or CALC FLUOR in 12x, but I do have both in 6x & 30c. Could either of those work?
Additionally,I can't seem to find symphytum in Q (I'm assuming that's the dilution), I'm not sure where I could get that here in the U.S. I can get symphytum in pellets. Could I get that in a different dilution?
