Below: Could be as simple as muscle pain and just need some physical therapy. With that history though, you'd want to be fully evaluated by a spine specialist (physiatry or anesthesia pain management, or an orthopedic spine surgeon or neurosurgeon). Make sure you take you MRI images to the first visit.
