as physical therapy or chiropractic treatments. If those fail, then
consider more invasive treatments such as injections (epidural, facet). If
all else fails, then surgery. Exceptions would be if you are experiencing
weakness or bowel and bladder urgency/incontinence. In those cases, your
surgeon will talk to you about having surgery right away.
Typically you would know if therapy is helping within the first two weeks.
You may need up to two injections to see their full benefit.
