I am living with back pain since 2003. I have 2 synovial cyst which seems to move and cause a pain. What is the best option to get rid of such cysts?

Otherwise, the cyst is just a consequence of osteoarthritis of the spine. If compressive, the cyst can be treated by injection or eventually surgery. ...Read more
