TreatmentFor those suffering from back pain, it can be difficult to find the right treatment. What works for one person may not work for another. That’s why it is important to try multiple treatment options until you find the one that works for you. Here is a basic overview of the treatment options available:

Exercise Therapy

Depending on the source of your pain, exercise therapy could be an effective treatment option. This is usually one of the first suggestions a doctor will make before proceeding to more aggressive options.

Medication

If exercise therapy doesn’t do the trick by itself, medication is often suggested as a supplement. There are a number of different medications on the market and doctors usually try a combination of drugs until an effective solution is discovered.

Surgery

While surgery has typically been thought of as invasive and risky, new developments in the field of medicine have changed the way doctors and patients view operations. In particular, the progression of MIS spine surgery has opened new doors for those suffering from pain. This minimally invasive procedure can provide all the pain relief benefits of traditional back surgery with smaller scars, reduced blood loss, less soft tissue damage, and quicker recovery time.
