Some of the treatments for this condition include:
Opioids: These medications can help relieve severe pain, but they should be used with caution. Opioids can cause side effects and may become addictive.
Physical therapy: Working with a physical therapist can help you regain movement in the affected parts of your body. Your physical therapist may use interventions such as exercise, massage, heat and cold treatment, and water therapy.
Talk therapy: Therapy can help with any mood changes related to arachnoiditis. Many people with this condition also experience depression. Therapy can help you cope with the emotional and physical pain of the disorder.
Surgery usually isn’t recommended to treat arachnoiditis. That’s because it relieves pain only temporarily, and it may cause more scar tissue to form.
