    When should I consider surgery for back pain?

    When nonsurgical treatments including physical therapy, bed rest, exercise, ice and heat therapy, medications and injections have not proven to be effective, your doctor may recommend surgery. For most situations regarding neck and back pain, it can be treated successfully without surgery. Consider surgery only after exhausting the appropriate non-operative measures including physical therapy, exercise, weight loss and injections.
