A wide variety of care options are offered by both medical and alternative medicine practitioners. Most doctors focus on pain and symptom relief (secondary conditions), and they do an excellent job with this approach. People often start with medication or herbal/homeopathic remedies which can temporarily shut off pain receptors. If medication doesn’t work, then courses of physical therapy may be used to strengthen muscular weakness, address spasm, or increase mobility. If the symptoms persist, injection programs (pain management) may be used to calm the site of pain. When all of these options have been exhausted, more invasive procedures like surgery are introduced and discussed. All of these care programs can be effective in the appropriate time and place and all have different goals.
