On your first visit to a specialist, he or she will first determine exactly how serious the problem is. Some problems need immediate attention — possibly even surgery. However, most back and neck problems do not require surgery. Once the most likely cause of your problem has been determined (your diagnosis has been made), you and your healthcare professional can decide on a treatment plan.
The term "conservative treatment" is used to describe any treatment option that does not involve surgery.
