The spine is a vital, yet extremely delicate part of the body. Unfortunately, millions of Americans experience back and neck pain as a result of trauma, poor posture, or deformity. If you’re one of these people, then you’ve likely tried several treatment options in your quest to ease your pain—all except surgery. Though it may seem scary, surgery can help in the following situations:
Although many Americans visit a chiropractor for problems such as a herniated or degenerative cervical disc, these situations cannot be completely resolved by any amount of exterior manipulation. With minimally invasive surgery, a surgeon can directly determine the issue and repair it.
Many sufferers of spinal conditions undergo physical therapy in order to ease their pain and learn how to move comfortably despite their condition—yet there is some neck and back pain that is beyond the scope of physical therapy. A broken vertebra in the lumbar portion of your spine could leave your spine unstable and requires immediate surgical intervention.
Those with bone deformities such as scoliosis (curvature of the spine) and kyphosis (a humpback deformity) experience pain and mobility issues that no amount of physical therapy or chiropractic care can ease. Fortunately, there’s a good chance that surgery can correct these conditions, depending on their severity.
