If it's red, it's probably muscular.
Yellow = spinal
Green = SI joint.

Both spinal and SI joint may have referring pain down into the leg (sciatica).

If it's spinal, see a doc. If it's SI joint see a chiropracter. ASAP for both.

Iliac crest is located at the junction of the L4-L5 vertebrae for reference.

seems to be muscular - it is in the lower right side of my back right about the glutes with no leg pain. Should I still get an xray to be sure?

X ray doesn't show anything.

If you're going to get anything it'd be an MRI.

Can you post up a picture marked with where the pain is?

Actually, I wanted a googled picture marked.

I can't really tell where that is on your body...

And as far as X ray not showing anything... it won't unless you slipped something badly or hairline fractured something... or other stuff like htat.

Steven,
I definitely realize the limitations of x-rays...I was speaking to a DO radiologist the other day and he was saying the standard approach is to do films first, then progress to an MRI.

Yep. They generally always take them first... but they generally don't show anything.

It good if it shows something because MRI cost a lot on you and insurance... but in general won't show much.

It may be possible to ask the doc for MRI before xray though...

No leg pain indicates it's not SI joint (this only from my injury experience, I have no training or clinical exp!) as the SI joint suckes up my legs somethign fierce. Do you know that piriformis release where you sit on a lacrosse or tenis ball? If not, do a search for it and try it. It's not what the main issue is, but low back always triggers mine and you might be able to get some related relief if yours is unhappy.
