Treatment options for chronic pain
Generally speaking, there are three different types of treatment options for neck and back pain:
- Non-invasive treatment – pain relief treatments that do not require back surgery. Examples are physical therapy, mild exercise, chiropractic work, steroid injections, pain medications and rest.
- Invasive treatment – also referred to as traditional open back surgery. Large incisions with invasive surgeries can involve stripping, cutting or damage to surrounding muscles. The spine surgeon will admit you into the hospital to perform the surgery. This is an in-patient procedure that can involve recovery periods of up to one year.
- Minimally invasive treatment – when a spine surgeon performs a procedure through a small incision. Through this small entry point, the surgeon is able to clean and repair spinal damage that may be caused by a damaged disc or facet joint. Because the site of incision is small, surrounding tissues are not harmed and recovery time is reduced.
