Failed Back Surgery
There is more than a 50% chance your back surgery will fail. Failure means equal or more pain, or more surgeries or drugs needed. Attempting to artificially stabilize a joint by fusion or by discectomy can destabilize the joint further by causing other vertebrae to make up the lost range of motion, or by decreasing the overall matter of the disc necessary for joint stabilization. Invariably, surgery further destabilizes spinal segments and increases misalignment causing more severe subluxation. Surgery speeds this process of subluxation.
If this is you, there may be hope. We have worked with surgery cases where there have been a complete recovery from symptoms. For these candidates, there is a special program at our office. Call and schedule a consultation with your Gonstead chiropractor to see if you qualify for care.
