Our expert says:
Surgery is rarely considered. However, if 2 months or more of bed rest, pain medicines, and physical therapy cannot relieve the back pain, surgery can be option.
Medication that may help are anti-inflammatory medication like Mypaid, physiotherapy, Calcium or medications like Fosamax to increase bone regeneration.
Your doctor should evaluate your general health to see if you can use anti-inflammatories for a few weeks ( you can't if you have a sensitive stomach or heart failure for instance)
