• facet joint injection

• posterior nerve root (medial branch) blocks with or without denervation (by cryotherapy or radiofrequency)

• deep friction massage (in conjunction with mobilisation and manipulation)


• pain clinic (if unresponsive to initial treatments)


• gravitational methods (home therapy)
