Start simply: There are specialists in the areas of the spine, including physiatrists, neurologists, and neurosurgeons and orthopedists. Many in spine clinics. However, there can be some simple reasons for back pain so i would start with a good primary provider to be certain that medical reasons for pain, or sleep dysfunction or depression are not contributing.

Dr. Adam Lewis

Back pain: There are many possibilities. Muscular strain, ligament tear, tear of the disc, inflammation of the facet joints, a central disc herniation, or a stress fracture can cause this kind of pain. Try anti-inflammatory medications, ice and a simple low profile back brace for a few days. If the pain persists then see a spine specialist.
