Non-operative spinal infection treatment

A spinal infection is an infection in your spine, which can include the bones, nerves, and discs. Medication is the first treatment.

The first treatment for spinal infections is an antibiotic or antifungal medicine to kill the bacteria or fungus causing the infection. The medicine may be given as pills or as an IV. How long you’ll be on the medicine depends on the type of infection and how bad it is.

If the medicine doesn’t work, spinal infection surgery may be necessary.
