What will a doc do for back pain?

Dh had to come home early from work today. His lower back is hurting so bad he couldn't finish the day. He has a doc appointment later. So what will the doc do? Other than pain killers? His back has been hurting chronically for months now.

Where in his lower back?  Down at the very bottom, by his butt, or up a little higher, closer to the middle?

Physical therapy? But first a reason for the pain will have to be figured out.

If you have the option my DH has found tremendous relief from acupuncture. And it is  ALOT cheaper than the MRI's, Xrays, Pain meds and finally steriod shot the doctor recommended and the effects of that lasted less than a week!

Depends on the dr.  Some will just prescribe some meds (muscle relaxers, etc) to see if that helps.  If it continues or has been a problem for a while (sounds like his case) maybe send him to a specialist for xrays to see if there is an underlying issue causing the pain.

Most doctors just prescribe mass amounts of pain killers and call it a day...

Muscle relaxers? Once I threw mine out and I begged my doc for JUST ONE (I'm not an addict and I swear addicts always claim back pain) so he wrote me a script, I took the one pill at night and woke up the next morning like a new person.  Worked like a charm.  Totally suggest it.
