Spinal Infection

The spine may be infected when organisms enter the blood stream or after spinal surgery. Unrelenting pain is the most common symptom, though the nerves and spinal cord may be affected if an abscess forms. Treatment with antibiotics is the most usual way to control spinal infection. If an abscess forms and the spinal cord is threatened, then surgery is considered.
