Medical Treatment

Neck and back pain and muscle spasm problems which gradually aggravate can be best resolved with medical treatments prescribed by our certified spine specialists.

More than 90 percent of patients with symptoms of back pain, sciatica, tingling will find relief with medicines only. Hardly 5% of patients would require surgical management. It is essential to get the right cocktail of medicines for an adequate duration and associated instructions to get out of the loop of pain – inactivity – aggravation of symptoms – pain.

Medical treatments incorporate medicinal courses with some lifestyle changes and may also include diagnostic therapies, physical exercises, psychiatry, or physiotherapy depending on the type and severity of the illness. Most of the medications prescribed for spinal treatment are NSAIDs, approved muscle relaxants, opioid analgesics, multi-vitamins, membrane stabilizers, etc.  Other internal procedures that may be included in a medical treatment course are:

  • Diagnostic procedures
  • Frequent consultation
  • Course of Injections
  • Manual medications
  • Occupational therapy
  • Electromyography
  • Functionality restoration therapy
  • Pain medication management and detoxification

In theory, medical treatments are prescribed for either of the three reasons:

  • Preventative treatment: a medical course for avoiding the development of a potential illness
  • Palliative treatment: to relieve the symptoms caused by a developing illness
  • Curative treatment: to cure a patient of a diagnosed illness
  • Pain Management: medical treatments and injections to primarily reduce the pain and disabilities triggered by a disease.

To stop the precise problem and relieve pain and other symptoms of it, our back pain specialist in Mumbai may first ask you to undergo some diagnostic procedures such as X-rays, MRI, etc. before deciding on the best course of medical treatment for you.
