Every person responds to treatment differently and it’s important to educate yourself and work with your doctor(s) to find the options that work best for your situation. Whether you’re exploring conservative care or seeking a surgical solution, we have information for you.
Your doctor will likely first use treatment options such as physical therapy, heat, and anti-inflammatory medications.
For the vast majority of patients, pain will subside over time using these types of conservative methods.
Additional forms of treatment may become necessary—such as injections and nerve root blocks. If found effective, these treatments can be performed several times by a pain management physician or physiatrist. These injections work by decreasing inflammation and, ultimately, the pain from irritated nerves.
If conservative forms of treatment fail to relieve your symptoms, then surgery may be presented as an option.
