What should I try for my patient before sending them to see a Neurosurgeon?
It's best to try all of the conservative modalities of treatment before consulting a surgeon. If a patient has tried physical therapy and the usual conservative modalities of treatment and are still not getting any relief it's probably time to seek a surgical opinion.
Is an operation the best way to treat back pain?
Not always. Sometimes it is best to try and injection first. Some people get enough relief from a spinal injection without having to resort to surgery. Of course, this depends on the individual patient's pathology. Dr Moloney can assess this at the consultation.
