We may control your pain using nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen, that do not require a prescription. Medication is typically combined with physical therapy as your first treatment.
Physical therapy exercises can strengthen your spine. They can also minimize your pain and help you avoid injury by improving your overall balance and flexibility. Your spine specialist may direct your physical therapy program by recommending the best exercises for you.
Epidural Steroid Injections
When NSAIDs are no longer effective, steroid injections may be prescribed to treat inflammation and pain right at the source. You may see your doctor and receive your treatment on the same day.
An acupuncturist on staff may help reduce your neck and back pain. We also offer nontraditional supplements such as fish oil, which some people find effective. We offer these treatments as a complement to your regular treatment plan, not as a substitute.
