Hi, this is Dr Hitin Mathur, orthopaedic surgeon at Fortis C Doc Hospital, New Delhi. As far as your back pain is concerned, it is important to examine you clinically to find the exact spot and cause of pain. An x ray of the LS spine AP and lateral view will be helpful. Sometimes low back ache can occur due to bone weakening on account of low vitamin D levels, so it would be wise to get your blood levels checked. Physiotherapy in the form of spinal extension exercises and short wave and ultrasonic therapy can be given once infection is ruled out as a cause of your symptoms. In the interim period you can start some analgesics along with an antacid to get some relief from pain till the cause of the pain is determined.
