An article at Spine-Health states that “it is reasonable to consider back surgery if the pain has not diminished after several months of non-surgical treatment, if your pain does not respond to narcotic medications or if you are unable to complete basic daily activities”.
I strongly believe that an invasive treatment such as spinal surgery certainly should not be considered simply because your back pain has not gone away for awhile, has not responded to pain killers, nor because you are unable to complete basic daily activities.
Back surgery for chronic pain is serious business!!!! For example, it can consist of cutting you open with a scapel and exposing your spinal cord and nerves (the core structure of the electrical system of your body) in order to fuse your vertebrae to limit its motion.
The function of your spinal cord, a delicate system without which you couldn’t live, is easy to disrupt or inhibit. The slightest error in surgical technique could result in debilitating problems or even death.
Perhaps we’ve been watching too many TV medical soap operas that make surgery look like a walk in the park. It’s not. Like watching action hero movies, maybe we’re becoming desensitized and unrealistic about what can happen to a flesh and blood human body and the impact and outcome of back surgery for chronic back pain.
Thankfully, the article following this overly simplistic prologue makes a logical statement; which is a paragraph stating that you should first find the cause of your back pain.
You May Not Need Surgery To Relieve Your Back Pain
If your back pain has not diminished after several months of non-surgical treatment, if your pain does not respond to narcotic medications and if you are unable to complete basic daily activities, it may be because you have an abnormal foot structure – a Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity – a common cause of chronic back pain.
If you have one of these two foot structures you won’t need surgery to relieve your back pain, as the only way to effective way to treat your abnormal feet is by a non invasive therapy called Rothbart Proprioceptive Therapy.
Reading the Curing Chronic Pain website will give you more information about the abnormal foot structures Professor/Dr. Rothbart discovered that cause many forms of chronic muscle and joint pain and help you determine whether an Initial Phone Consultation with him might be helpful.
For a more complete explanation of the Rothbarts Foot and PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity, read: Abnormal Foot Structures That Cause Chronic Pain.
To find out if you may have one of two common inherited, abnormal foot structures that cause chronic muscle and joint pain, take the Rothbarts Foot Questionnaire.
As you learn more about Professor/Dr. Rothbart’s innovative therapy, you may find that addressing and effectively treating your foot structure may be the missing link to ending your long time battle with unrelenting muscle and joint pain.
