Many people believe that spinal surgery is the only treatment option for problematic back or neck pain. Marina Spine Center offers non-operative care options like medications, manipulations, and spinal injections in Los Angeles to try to treat pain without surgery.
Spinal surgeons will often prescribe anti-inflammatory medications, muscle relaxants, or analgesics to try to decrease pain before they even consider surgery. They might also inject numbing medications or steroids into the affected area to decrease discomfort.
Options like physical therapy or core stabilization techniques can also help with the pain. Check out this video to learn more about these non-operative care options and how they can help relieve back pain.
