reating a patient for back or neck pain all depends on the diagnosis. Based on the exact problem with the patient’s back or neck, physicians may recommend surgical or non-surgical treatment. After doing a physical exam, most doctors can correctly identify the underlying cause of the pain, and give educated advice on how the patient should pursue relieving the pain they are experiencing. Because the spine (backbone) literally supports your entire torso and contains 33 vertebrae, there is a lot that for physicians to consider when determining a cause and a treatment. These issues can start in the upper spine, lower spine, in between discs, alignment, and so forth. With that being said, it is very difficult to pin point the root of the pain. However, in doing so, physicians can recommend and give the proper medical treatment and advice to help relieve the pain.
There are two types of treatments: non-surgical and surgical. Obviously, non-surgical treatment is preferred if it can fix the issue, rather than simply disguise it. However, if the problems persist, or the pain is too severe, physicians will recommend surgical treatment to help fix the back problems. Here is a breakdown of the types of treatments affiliated with non-surgical and surgical treatment.
ach of these treatments listed is medically recommended to relieve back or neck pain. However, not all of the treatments permanently relieve the pain.
- Total disc replacement
- Spinal Fusion
- Endoscopic Decompression
- Replacement and Augmentation
- Bone Graft
Typically, in order to ensure permanent relief and depending on the diagnosis, physicians will recommend surgical treatment to fix the underlying cause of the pain, but each person and each case is different.
