  • WHAT IS DORSALGIA? (M54: Dorsalgia)

What is next after staying diagnosed with critical dorsalgia? What is the best treatment choice to opt for when your doctor diagnoses you with dorsalgia? Is it better to continue with surgery or handle the pain through traditional therapy?


What Is Dorsalgia?

For starters, dorsalgia is severe back pain, which could be coming from various parts of the spine. Rely on the specific part of the spine where the pain is arising from, there are six types of dorsalgia. These are:


  • Cervical
  • Cervicothoracic
  • Thoracic
  • Thoracolumbar
  • Lumbar
  • Lumbosacral


The seriousness of the dorsalgia is reliant on the area of the spine it is affecting and the probable cause of the pain. To correctly define the purpose of the pain, you want a proper, proper diagnosis, and we can do that for you here at Royal Spine Surgery.

Best Treatment for M54: Dorsalgia

There are two treatment choices for dorsalgia: conservative therapy and surgical treatment. A doctor pegs the option of treatment for dorsalgia on the diagnosis and etiology. Etiology is the determining of the cause of a provided condition and its severity.

Before settling on a specific treatment choice, a good doctor will carefully examine the results from the diagnosis, use etiology to determine the feasible causes, and talk to the patient about what suits them best. 

Here is a look at the two treatment choices for dorsalgia and what they need here at Royal Spine Surgery:

Conservative Therapy for Dorsalgia

Conservative Therapy for Dorsalgia

A doctor elects to use conservative treatment to treat dorsalgia if the conditions are not very critical, and it is in their first stages. The treatment includes the use of over-the-counter pain killers, physical therapy, chiropractic therapy, massage therapy, and pain management attacks for potential injections.

Pain management injections strength be considered if other forms of conservative therapies are not containing the conditions making the pain. The doctor will inject anti-inflammatory drugs into the injured area and see if they will better treat the condition. Such injections can also help to secure and confirm an assumed diagnosis and the beginning of pain.

If these conservative measures are not working, then the doctor will have to opt for treatment choice number two. 

Surgical Treatment for M54: Dorsalgia

A doctor selects to do surgery to treat dorsalgia if, after a close review of the diagnosis report, he/she determines that the condition after the pain is severe and wants surgery to improve the condition. Surgery also comes into the photo if therapy is not operating, and the condition is worsening.
