When Would Spine Injections Be Required?

Most often, non- surgical interventional methods help to alleviate the pain arising from mechanical causes that typically cause sciatica and back pain.

However, it is essential to understand the cause of the pain before treating it. Back disorders very seldom require aggressive surgery. Intervention should be minimal and only when necessary.
