Varied: There are many specialist associated with the spine. As an orthopedic spinal surgeon I am bias to that specialty as the premier source for treatment. But there are equally good neurosurgeon in the field. When surgery is not needed, there are interventional anesthesiologist who are trained in treatment of disorders that respond to injections. P.T, chiropractors, & pcp should be consulted.

Hopefully helpful: Usually a back specialist is an ortopaedic surgeon or neurosugeon who specializes in back disorders. There are other specialists who do non op care such as physiatrists, neurologists as well as some anesthesiologists who may do pain management.
