Assemble your team: Back pain can be due to many different problems. See your regular doctor for a physical examination, diagnosis, and initial treatment plan. Have a radiologist review x-rays and mri. Consult physical therapist for exercise program, if ok with the general doctor, and consider a consultation with a pain specialist for chronic pain management with conservative management fails.

Pain specialists also treat acute pain, not just chronic. Consult action with a physiatrist may be helpful
