Hi Catherine,

Have you visited your pcp? Most insurances have you see them so you can get a referral to a back specialist. Your pcp is your first line for conservative treatment.

Have you taken anything for your back pain. Over the counter meds like Aleve, Advil. Tylenol? Have you done any stretching or exercising to relieve your back pain?
What about ice or heat? Combinations of all the above might be all you need.

If you have tried the conservative route and nothing has relieved your pain, a back specialist might help. Have you tried massage therapy or chiropractic?

I'm praying you can find the help you need to relieve your pain . Let us know how you're doing!

God Bless You!

Is your problem a Pars Defect? If so I can refer to a great physician in Atlanta. He has a lot of experience with Pars and performed Pars Defect surgery on my son with great results.
