    hello jrht

    welcome to spine-health

    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 without any additional treatments.


    some more treatments may be needed, such as spinal injections, ultra sound and stronger medications.  there are always the possibility of more aggressive treatments if the conservative measures have not helped.  most of the time, surgery is not an immediate solution.


    need for stronger medications would be required.   surgery may be necessary to correct the condition

    another key word to look for is unremarkable.  that is a positive statement

    Do you have an appointment with a spine specialist, neurosurgeon or orthopedic, that is your next step, you need a treatment plan to get you out of pain, and a specialist will be the only one to do that.
