I need to get several spinal X-rays due to scoliosis. Is this safe? There is an article that ties spinal X-rays to breast cancer? ?

The limited number of X-rays you'll be having won't give you cancer.
Don't be ridiculous.
Where did you read that article? In a serious, peer-reviewed, professional medical journal?
I doubt it. You don't have access to such journals and wouldn't understand them. You're reading trash.
Edit: Occupational therapy is useless for scoliosis.

Medical X-rays of the spine (or anywhere else) won't give you any kind of cancer.

It sounds excessive to me. As the doctor if he can refer you to an occupational therapist without the X-rays.

Talk to your Physician.
And the Radiologist.
What is the purpose of the need to x-ray?
What is the dose?

X-rays are tied to all types of cancer. The risk depends on the x-ray dosage accumulated over a life time. An X-ray series of the spine is little less than the dose of background radiation that you receive naturally in a year. So the breast cancer risk is about the same as if you were one year older.

On the internet, there are MANY articles on how the earth is actually flat.
I think maybe I'm a different species...
