Spine pain is the most common benign pain seen in pain clinics. It can happen secondary to multiple factors such as herniated disc disease, spinal stenosis, sacroiliac disease, facet joint disease, and various other conditions. Treatment is usually in the form of medications, injections, physical therapy, and surgery.
There are different classes of medications used for pain. Also there are different techniques and injections that can be performed, some injections include steroids and some do not. If medications, physical therapy, and injections fail, then the patient could be a candidate for surgery or other minimally invasive techniques such as neuromodulation.
