Non surgical solutions to spine (back and neck) pain and nerve pain
Many people with back and neck pain have suffered for a number of years without any response to conservative treatments such as physiotherapy, acupuncture, massage or chiropractic care. When these therapies fail to provide relief, the next step is often referral to a spinal surgeon. While surgery is the best option for some people, the risks often outweigh the benefits and if you are in this situation, your are probably feeling anxious and frustrated.
