Back Pain and Neck Pain Treatments

B

ack or neck pain treatments must be carefully performed and executed, as a healthy back and neck are both extremely significant to the human body. Therefore, a proper diagnosis with the back and neck is equally important. Depending on if you are having problems with your back, neck, or even both, physicians may recommend surgical or non-surgical treatment. There are other issues that rely on this decision, but that will typically be decided after the doctor views your file, past surgeries, allergies, and so forth. After doing a physical exam, most physicians will be able to correctly identify the issues that are causing you problems, and, from there, decide which treatment best suits the patient’s needs. Due to the significant portion of your body that your spine supports, there are multiple issues the doctor must consider when diagnosing and determining treatment. With so many different aspects of the spinal column, in the neck and the back, it is an extremely detailed process to determine what is causing the pain. But in diagnosing the issues through these processes, doctors can better recommend treatment that will help you get healthier quicker.

There are two types of treatments: non-surgical and surgical. The purpose of non-surgical treatments are to relax muscles and loosen the body, allowing for more fluidity with body movement. However, if the back or neck pain continues or worsens, your doctor will most likely recommend surgical treatment. The surgical and non-surgical treatments are as follows:

Non-Surgical Treatments

  • Massage Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Heat and Cold Therapy
  • Steroid Injections
  • Acupuncture
  • Medication

Surgical Treatments

  • Spinal Fusion

  • Discectomy
  • Laminotomy
  • Replacement and Augmentation
  • Neurostimulation
