In brief: Osteopath

29yo has "back hurting on right side".
Assuming discomfort more than 2-3 months this would be a chronic back pain disorder. A person with this symptom profile might start with Osteopaths; who are skilled at diagnosing soft tissue disorders. Orthopedists are trained to diagnose disorders amenable to surgery. We have saying in medicine: "when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail".

Always get a second opinion if a surgeon recommends that he can heal with steel.
