There are a wide variety of options offered by medical and alternative medicine practitioners. Most doctors are focused on pain and symptom management, and they do an excellent job. The first type of treatment would focus on medication or herbal/ homeopathic remedies which can turn off pain receptors. Then the next step would be different forms of physical therapy that would be used to strengthen muscular weakness, address spasms, or increase mobility. Injection programs would then be introduced to calm the pain. When those don’t work, more invasive procedures such as surgery come into play.
All of these options are effective in the appropriate time and place and are geared towards different goals. Our goal is to correct the neural and structural integrity of your spine.
