The procedure known as vertebroplasty is used for stabilizing a spinal fracture and to ease the pain the fracture causes. Because it is administered by simply puncturing the patient's skin, rather than with an open incision, it is thought to be minimally invasive. This procedure is usually completed within an hour, and bed rest is generally recommended for the next 24 hours - kyphoplasty.

Surgical pain treatment does not necessarily mean full anesthesia and a huge incision. Minimally-invasive surgical techniques and steroid and anesthetic injections can be performed at a physician's office or outpatient center with the patient going home within a few hours of treatment.

Minimally invasive spinal fusion corrects congenital deformities such as scoliosis, with a goal to strengthen the spine and alleviate irritated nerves. Some patients will take any form of treatment to erase the - back pain, and methods for non-surgical treatment are available.

Kyphoplasty treats spinal fractures caused by osteoporosis, cancer or hypothyroidism, and uses orthopaedic balloons and bone cement to strengthen the spine. Intradiscal electrothermal therapy (IDET) is another type of treatment that heats a needle to a high temperature and inserted into a catheter in a patient with a bulging vertebral disk in the back.
