Read through the Tip at the top of this WebMD Back Pain Community that lists the steps for diagnosing and treating back pain. Within that Tip are links to websites that have good information about spinal problems and their treatments. There is a link there to which has a page that explains MRI or CT Scan results.

I hope you can get treatment and relief soon.
