Spine Surgeon 's  Response
Back pain radiating to leg may be due to pinching of the nerve in spine. There few other reasons as well. I think you need to be investigated. get spine xrays and get examined by orthopedic spine specialist. Generalised treatment includes the pain medicine and physio modalities. Thanks.
