May not have many: Its hard to comment without knowing what they are seeing, but there may not be a good option. Generally, back and neck pain is managed with medications such as anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers, physical therapy, injections, or surgery if it is severe enough and a good candidate.

Back problem.: Time to get another opinion. May not be amenable to surgery. Physical therapy should be considered.
