In brief: Yes

It is a non steroidal anti-inflammatory that is usually given IV or im. But comes as an oral formulation as well.
It does help with back pain. It is in the same class as Ibuprofen and naprosyn (naproxen) (aleve). So don't take these medications in addition to your toradol. As always, take your medication as directed.

In brief: Short term

To radial is an anti-inflammatory that can effectively reduce back pain.
See a physiatrist (spine specialist) to diagnose your specific problem to design an individualized rehabilitation program. This is both to decrease pain and prevent recurrence.

In brief: Yes, but....

Toradol can help pain but can't be taken regularly.
It is very damaging to your kidneys. It is better to find out what the underlying problem is and deal with it.
