who have failed to improve with PT and / or chiropractic. Pain
management might include medications, or various spinal injections.
Sometimes these injections are meant to help your pain

a certain area to help us determine the such of your pain.
Occasionally the injections do both. Sometimes a trial of
spinal cord stimulation is performed, but usually as a last resort.
