    Hello jasonwells1982

    Welcome to Spine Health

    No one on the Spine-Health patient forums is medically qualified or permitted to provide any advice or recommendations on any diagnostic test. However, the following key words can always be applied.

     

    MILD Treated with conservative measures such as Physical Therapy and mild medications. Many times these situations can be cleared up and the condition can be resolved.

     

    MODERATE Some more treatments may be needed, ie Spinal Injections, Ultra sound and stronger medications. Always a possibility of more aggressive treatment if the conservative measures don't help 


    SEVERE Need for stronger medications. The requirement for surgery may be necessary  



    All new members should take the System Tutorial
