See your doctor.: Very difficult to diagnose back pain without a good physical exam. If the treatment at the emergency room recommended is not effective then you should see your doctor for a thorough examination.

Consult Pain Doctor: The key to correcting the problem is to find out exactly what is causing it. To do this you need the help of a well trained pain medicine physician. The steps to diagnosis are to give the doctor the story of the pain-when it started, where it is located, etc. Then, after examining you, a MRI will be ordered. Finally doctor may suggest a diagnostic injection. A precise DX leads to a precise tx.
