Should You Get Back Surgery?

Back pain can be debilitating, causing significant pain, lack of mobility, and stress in other areas of the body. There are many reasons for back pain, ranging from simple to complex. Depending on the reason for the pain, surgery may seem like the best and only fix. However, the decision regarding whether or not to get back surgery requires a number of different considerations – more than just whether or not the procedure in question will address the pain. For instance, the issue that necessitates the surgery is just one piece of the puzzle as is the success rate for the surgery in question. Additional roadblocks include the rate of recovery following a back procedure, whether or not insurance will cover back surgery, contingency plans in the event that the surgery makes the problem worse, and more.

According to a 2009 study printed in the British Medical Journal, almost half of all back surgeries either fail to address issues of pain or make the pain worse. This is a fairly high rate of surgical failure considering the general risks of such a procedure. As such, when making the decision about whether or not to undergo such a procedure, this is something to consider. Moreover, there is a certain precarious nature present when operating on the spine or the muscles and tissues in the direct vicinity of it. As such, many people tend to look to other options, leaving back surgery as a last resort.

Chiropractic care is just such an option. It can, for instance, can help to alleviate many of the same issues as surgery without a high degree of risk. Moreover, chiropractic care offers a planning process that is customized to the back issue in question. This means if the issue is one centered in the low back, chiropractic care can target the areas of pain and work towards not only strengthening and properly aligning this area of the spine but also to help patients to lead a pain-free and active lifestyle.

In today’s culture of instant results, back surgery might seem to be optimal from the outset. However, considering the potential for complications, it is well worth taking the time to explore alternative options that are not only less costly and less invasive, but ones – like chiropractic – that have proven rates of success for back issues.
