Was spine MRI done second time? A spine orthopedist is recommended and you should obtain all the radiology results on CD when seeing the orthopedist.

I recommend consulting a orthopedic specialist in spinal problems or being seen at a clinic specializing in spinal problems. Bring copies of your xrays and MRI with the interpretations of these tests. You will be examined &any other needed tests will be ordered. You will get a diagnosis and treatment options will be discussed and a course of physical therapy appears to be in order.
