Much thanks for your reply. I had a blood count, esr, and crp sent which were all normal and I was told this makes infection unlikely. There was no mention of facet fracture in the mri report (so I assume that wasn’t present). Assuming this is mechanical LBP, do most patients see this resolve (or at least substantially improve) with time (and core strengthening, rehab, etc), or does this often lead to chronic ongoing pain? Thanks again for your insight.
