Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
In February, 2010, I wrote a blog entitled, Your Back Pain May Be Worse After Having Back Surgery. I cautioned my readers about the all too frequent back surgeries that are being performed. Many of these surgeries not only fail, but also increase the patient’s back pain compared to the pain level they were experiencing before they had back surgery.
In my article, I quoted several examples from Spine Health Forum, of patients who had experienced exactly what I had written about. Since then, this article has received seventy three comments from people lamenting about their failed back surgery. Having received so many tales of woe, I thought it’d be a good idea to expand my comments on this subject.
After back surgery has been performed and (in many cases) hardware has been implanted to stabilize the spine, why are the results not only disappointing, but often far more painful than before the surgery?
The most obvious explanation is that the cause of the original back pain was not addressed. And when a doctor performs surgery merely on a symptom (i.e., back pain) it solves nothing. Instead, it often weakens your spine.
A question I often receive is: With all this hardware implanted in my spine, why didn’t the surgery work? And why is my back pain worse after surgery?
The answer is best understood when looking at similar problems we see with buildings. When an architect looks at a building with a crumbling wall (compare this wall to your back) he knows that by merely reinforcing the wall with cement (compare this to placing hardware in your spine) this will not solve the problem if the building is settling (compare this to your bad posture).
In order to solve the problem, the architect must first stabilize the foundation (compare this to your feet).
In order to stabilize your human foundation – your feet – you first need to look at why your feet are creating your bad posture.
Failed Back Surgeries May Be Connected To Your Foot Structure
When you have an abnormal foot structure – such as the Rothbarts Foot or PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity– your feet send distorted signals up to your brain. Your brain responds by automatically distorting your posture. That is; all the weight bearing joints in your body become misaligned. This includes your back.
So if you have one of these common abnormal foot structures (most people have one or the other in lesser or greater severity) this is the most likely cause of your back pain. And all the hardware in the world is not going to correct your abnormal feet nor make your back pain go away.
On the other hand, when you effectively address the problems coming from your feet, your spine automatically stabilizes itself. As a result, back surgery isn’t required because your back pain has gone away.
Please read the comments posted under my original article, Your Back Pain May Be Worse After Having Back Surgery. After reading person after person lamenting about their failed back surgery; if you still are considering back surgery, I’m at a loss as to what it would take to motivate you to have second thoughts.
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.
