Marshfield Clinic medical and spine specialists can treat many spine problems that cause pain with non-surgical procedures. Following a thorough examination, your doctor will recommend a treatment, which could range from medication to physical therapy to one of the injection procedures commonly used for spine discomfort.

In serious cases, a doctor who specializes in spine surgery may be consulted for surgical options.

The nonsurgical options include:

  1. Medications
  2. Physical therapy
  3. Therapeutic and Diagnostic Spinal Injections
  4. Back/neck exercises
  5. Orthosis (a brace)
  6. Physical modalities, such as TENS: Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation, which is a form of electrical anesthesia used to block pain

Your treatment plan may include more than one of these options.
