Suggest treatment for back pain

I have pain on the right side of the back. Sometimes it seems to be around the ribs, other times along the mid spine. It comes and goes in the course of the day. There is a sense of tightness. It has gone on for a few months. The right hip has ached off and on for years. The shoulder are often tense. The shoulder tension and hips have been an issue for years, but the back is new. Thank you

Hi, I had gone through your question and understand your concerns

With such presentation in my clinic ,I would like to exclude radicular pain from the back to the hip by doing MRI for the back .I advise you also to do x-ray pelvis to exclude any hip pathology .

I advise you to receive muscle relaxant ,neurotonics and NSAID and I prefer wearing lumbosacral belt.
