Treatment of Back and Neck Pain

When experiencing back and neck pain, everyday light activities such as walking, eating, coughing and sneezing become very painful. Although various things have been done to relieve pain, sometimes the pain comes again.

Also often, specialists give different explanations about what causes pain and moreover, how to deal with it. When someone visits a doctor, it is essential to collect medical history and undergo a physical and nerve examination.

This is to ensure that pain is not caused by cancer or damage to the spine. Depending on the results of the examination later, further analyses such as laboratory or radiological tests can also be performed.

There are various types of medical treatments for back and neck pain, from conservative to invasive treatments. Formation therapy includes the use of a cervical collar or lumbar support. Physiotherapy is often tried with the use of massage therapy, ultrasound, ice therapy, and heat and traction, especially for neck pain.

The use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like as aspirin, ibuprofen, naproxen, celecoxib, and etoricoxib is often used in this regard. If conservative therapy fails, more invasive tests can be done, for example with myofascial trigger point injections, joint surface injections, nerve blocks and steroid injections that can relieve pain.

Through Nucleoplasty, the disc is reduced by an x-guided probe that enters the disc and then secretes excess disc. IntraDiscal Electrothermal Therapy (IDET) uses heat energy through special needles that are inserted into the disrupted disc and heated to high temperatures for 20 minutes.

Heat thickens and closes the disc wall and reduces inner discussion bumps and irritation of the spinal cord. Radiofrequency ablation from nerves to joints also allows us to stop the pain from joint inflammation. In the final spectrum of treatment, surgical procedures such as spinal fusion, laminectomy, and disc replacement are used for spinal diseases that are too severe.
