Non-Surgical Treatments

Treatment options for spine conditions vary depending on the specific condition, severity, and individual circumstances. Here are some common treatment options:

1. Medication:

Over-the-counter pain relievers like ibuprofen or acetaminophen can help manage mild to moderate pain. For more severe pain or inflammation, prescription medications such as muscle relaxants or anti-inflammatory drugs may be prescribed.

2. Physical Therapy:

A physical therapist can design a customized exercise program to improve strength, flexibility, and range of motion in the spine. This can help alleviate pain and prevent future issues.

3. Chiropractic Care:

Chiropractors use manual manipulation techniques to realign the spine and alleviate pain. This can be particularly beneficial for conditions like herniated discs or spinal misalignment.

4. Injections:

Corticosteroid injections, such as epidural steroid injections or facet joint injections, can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain in the spine. These injections are typically administered under guidance using imaging techniques like fluoroscopy.

5. Alternative Therapies:

Some individuals find relief from complementary and alternative therapies such as acupuncture, massage therapy, yoga, or tai chi. While these treatments may not directly address the underlying cause of the spine condition, they can help alleviate pain and improve overall well-being.

Surgical Treatments

In cases where conservative treatments fail to provide relief or when there is severe structural damage to the spine, surgery may be necessary.
Depending on whether symptoms are originating from the cervical spine or lumbar spine, neck or back surgery may be necessary. Common surgical procedures include discectomy (removal of a herniated disc), laminectomy (removal of part of the vertebral bone), spinal fusion, or artificial disc replacement. See our Neck Surgery and Back Surgery sections for complete details of surgical treatment options offered at Spine Capital. Our focus is on using minimally invasive surgery to get our patients better faster.
It’s essential for patients to work closely with one of our healthcare professionals to develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored to their specific needs and goals. Treatment may involve a combination of approaches to address pain, improve function, and enhance quality of life.
