Most back problems can be taken care of with nonsurgical treatments, such as anti-inflammatory medication, ice, heat, osteopathic manipulation, spinal injections, and physical therapy. When conservative treatment options do not provide relief, back surgery may be an option. However, it does not help every type of back pain. Surgery is typically only needed in a small percentage of cases.
