Evaluating Spine Problems

Treating your spine problem begins with an evaluation to determine the cause and treatment options. A complete medical history, including questions about the onset of your discomfort will help your doctor identify the probable cause.

In some cases, your doctor will need additional information best gathered through x-ray, MRI, blood tests and so on. When your doctor has sufficient information, a course of treatment is determined.

Your treatment for back or neck pain may include:

  • Medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Therapeutic and diagnostic spinal injections
  • Back/neck exercises
  • Surgery

Spine discomfort can range from minor issues to major conditions requiring surgery. Marshfield Clinic's spine specialists will work with you to determine the best course of action for your problem.

Discomfort can often be relieved with non-surgical treatments. However, serious spine conditions may require the skilled services of a surgeon and Marshfield Clinic has the best.
