Treatments

Treatments for spinal conditions range from non-invasive approaches such as braces and physical therapy to modern surgical methods such as spinal injections and spinal surgery. Your treatment plan will be tailored by our specialists to manage and address the cause of your symptoms.

    Some spinal injuries can be treated without surgery. Below are some treatment options that our specialists may recommend during your treatment.
    • Spinal orthosis / bracing

    • Medications such as anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs), pain relievers, or muscle relaxers

    In certain indications, surgery is recommended as an option to manage your spine condition.  Our spine surgeons are familiar with the latest surgical techniques including minimally invasive surgery and robotic navigation.  Some of the procedures of spinal surgery are listed below:
