Brief Answer:
Please tell me more about your back pain.

Detailed Answer:
Hello, I'm Dr. Branch, thanks for using Ask a Doctor.

There are many things you can do for back pain, including physical therapy exercises, medications, and, if those don't work, injections in your back or sometimes even surgery.

It would help me to know how long you have had your back pain, whether you have any pain that goes down your legs or if you have any leg weakness, and what treatments have you tried already?

Then I can hopefully give you more specific advice.
