Dr. Kaixuan Liu with Atlantic Spine Center discusses Minimally Invasive...
Unless there are concerns of nerve death or other permanent injury to the patient, the first step for treating radiculitis should be through conservative and not surgical intervention. Depending on what underlying condition is causing the radiculitis, conservative treatments have a high success rate and in many occasions will lead to a full recovery.
Non-Surgical treatment for radiculitis may include heat and/or cold therapy, exercises to help strengthen your back, anti-inflammatory medications, and physical therapy combined with activity modification. Most people that do well with the above treatments will find that their symptoms are lessened or relieved within 6 weeks.
Advanced diagnostic tools and procedures are used to help develop a treatment program that fits your specific needs. The location of your radiculitis, how bad your symptoms are, and how long you have been feeling them are all factored in when determining what radiculitis treatment plan is good for you. Atlantic Spine Center will consider you history, what your needs are, and tailor a plan that is right for you.
Endoscopic spine procedures can be used to correct many of the conditions that cause chronic back pain or to repair failed previous surgeries.- Kaixuan Liu, MD, PhD President, Atlantic Spine Center Read More about Dr.Liu
