In brief: Further treatment

There are more aggressive treatment options for the spine that are more powerful than using over the counter medications, but they get progressively more involved.
From non invasive alternatives such as physical therapy or chiropractic care, to interventional pain procedures which are invasive but non surgical, to even surgical considerations. I would not hesitate to be seen to discuss options.
