Hi, I recently had an xray on my lower back to help diagnose my back pain. The results read preserved disc height, no fracture or dislocation, preserved pedicles and sacroiliac joints, slight sigmoid scoliosis, and midlumbar straightening. What would be the treatment for that? Is it chiropractic, do I simply need to take anti-inflamatory?

Hi, I bend down and when I got up I heard a crack in my lower back. I was in a lot of pain that also affected my left left. I went to the ER and they diagnose me with Lumbar Strain. They gave me ibuprofen and muscle relaxer. That helped a lot but I was still in pain. Yesterday, I felt pain that was somewhat like a electric shock in my lower back that shot up the spine. I started to get worried that it s not just a lumbar strain. Please answer me. I need to know if this is serious and if i have to go back to the ER.
