Treatments of Arachnoiditis discussion:
The goal of treatment should be to return the patient to
a functional role in society. Conservative therapy such as pain management
is generally recommended. In those patients whose arachnoiditis is
progressive, surgery to remove adhesions is only minimally effective
because scar tissue continues to develop. Also, surgery exposes the
already irritated spinal cord to additional trauma.
