How Can I Find Back Pain Relief Without Surgery?
If you suffer from back pain, you know all too well how debilitating the discomfort can be. Everyday tasks, like getting dressed or driving, are easily and frequently disrupted. Some people experience back pain in ebbs and flows, while others suffer it on a nearly constant basis. It’s a widespread problem, too. Lower back pain affects an estimated 80 percent of adults in the U.S. at some point in their lives. Recent studies also indicate that complex, unnecessary spine operations, including discectomy, spinal fusion, and spinal disc replacement, are on the rise.
The Risks of Back Surgery
Surgery may seem like the only solution to find relief from a debilitating condition like sciatic pain or a herniated disc, but any operation comes with a host of potential complications and expenses. Recovery time can take months, and the procedure may end up unsuccessful. A review conducted in 2016 found up to 74.6 percent of back surgeries failed to completely relieve pain, and the percentage of need for re-operation ranged from 13 to 35 percent.
People may choose back surgery in a rush to find relief, or put off medical care and suffer more than they need, because they don't know effective, non-invasive treatments are available. It’s important to educate yourself with a second opinion, and weigh alternative options, before determining whether surgery is the right choice for you.
Midwest Pain Solutions Offers Alternatives to Back Surgery
Midwest Pain Solutions specializes in non-surgical treatments which focus on the body’s natural ability to heal itself. We offer customized care plans that often feature high intensity laser treatments (HILT) – a painless therapy we pioneered – along with chiropractic adjustments and other non-invasive treatments.
Unlike drugs or spinal injections, which merely mask the pain temporarily, the treatments in our custom care plans target its source. HILT stimulates healing by using high-powered lasers at specific wavelengths to relieve pain and reduce swelling. The treatment can penetrate a patient’s deep tissue to restore places a chiropractic adjustment cannot.
A final consideration is the contrast in recovery time among treatment choices. While a spinal surgery patient will need three to 12 months before being able to return to a normal routine, Midwest Pain Solutions’ custom care plans can reduce pain immediately and require zero downtime.
