It depends on what symptoms are you experiencing in your neck and back.
Conservative treatments like nsaids, acetaminophen, topical medications, physical therapy are examples. If you are experiencing pain that radiates to your extremities from your neck and back. Then a more aggressive approach is in order. Assuming you do not have surgical indications, interventional pain procedures could help.
