If your brother's MRI is normal then on the basis of ESR we can not called it TB. I think your brother has back pain due to weak back muscle. What is his occupation. Is he travels a lot because that can cause back pain. I would suggest you to show him to another orthopaedic doctor. You can show it to me also.
