Back pain which radiates into leg is usually because of what is called as slip disc in layman's terms. Initial management is with rest and medication. If it doesn't help, then MRI scan may be needed.

Low back ache with radiation may be due to nerve compression in the back. The cause of the above will need to be investigated to treat the condition. So get x ray LS spine AP and lateral views along with following blood tests fasting: HB, TLC, DLC, ESR, calcium, phosphorus, Alkaline phophotaae, vitamin D3 levels and uric acid. Revert back with investigations. In the meantime start Tab Zinase D twice a day after meals, tab neksium 40 Mg's once a day before breakfast, tab pregalin X SR at 7:30 pm. Make sure you are not allergic to the above medications before starting them.
