In brief: What is Diagnosis?

When you have a clear diagnosis there are always options for rx.
Physical therapy, modalities, otc meds and then rx meds may all be utilized along with complementary rx such as acupuncture, chiropractic and massage. For nerve injury/failed back surgery, treatments such as spinal cord stimulation enable enhanced quality of life and reduced or elimination of opioid medications.
