Have you been referred to a spine specialist? Chances are you’re curious about how this doctor will help you get out of pain and whether the treatment plan will include surgery. It’s important to know that spine surgeons only recommend surgery as a last-resort treatment option and will exhaust all nonsurgical treatment options first. At Comprehensive Spine Institute, we offer numerous noninvasive/nonsurgical back pain treatments and interventional spine treatments like back injections.
Noninvasive Spine Treatments
Relief from back pain may be relatively simple and not include any injections or incisions. Conservative, nonsurgical options include:
Interventional Spine Treatments
If noninvasive treatments don’t help you sustain significant relief, there are interventional spine treatments that may prove successful. Although not a noninvasive approach, spinal injections are less invasive than surgical treatment, even minimally invasive surgery.
We offer the following interventional spine treatments at Comprehensive Spine Institute:
- Epidural steroid injections
- Facet injections
- Spinal cord stimulators
- Stem cell therapy
- Radiofrequency ablation
- And more
