Hello, I am Dr. Aren and I will help with your query.Use of short term steroid course and neuropathic drugs like Gabapentin/Pregabalin may be tried to reduce any local inflammation due to pressure on spinal nerve roots (Radiculitis),muscle relaxants like Myoril/Thiocolchicide may also help relieve any muscle spasm.Drugs like Tramadol,ibubrufen and other NSAIDs may help reuce pain and local inflammation. Physiotherapy by an experienced Physiotherapist depending on the cause may also help.
