Abstract

Chronic spinal pain is a very common and complicated clinical picture in

which a therapeutic approach could not have been shown to be superior

to the other in long term. When a pain generator could be identified,

interventional treatment methods may be a therapeutic choice. Spinal

interventions may be efficient both diagnostically and therapeutically in

carefully selected patients. When spinal interventions are applied to a

correctly chosen patient as a part of a rehabilitation program, they can

accelerate recovery, increase function and decrease analgesic use. Turk J
