4) No Guarantees
Another common reason why spinal surgery should be your last option would be … I’m trying to think. Is that you’re not really guaranteed to make a full recovery.
So, usually, when a surgeon or someone cuts on you, you don’t get the rehabilitation afterward.
And it’s because a lot of times they’re afraid that they’re going to get a lawsuit against them because it is so invasive and that there are no guarantees, that they don’t want anyone else to touch their back after spinal surgery. And that’s just the wrong approach, right?
So, if you’ve got rods and cones and things put into your spine and your muscles have been cut, you need to rehabilitate those muscles.
You need to make those muscles stronger.
ou need to regain the flexibility of your spine and you also just need to get the confidence in knowing that you can bend, lift, and twist again, without throwing out your back and along those same token.
Spinal Surgery Should Be Your Last Option…
So, there you have it in a nutshell, those are really the main reasons why spinal surgery should be your last option…
One, It’s literally a flip of a coin if it’s going to work.
Two, it doesn’t really address the root cause in most instances.
Three, it doesn’t properly rehabilitate the muscles and those things.
Four, a lot of times, patients just don’t even need it because if you do an MRI or an x-ray on someone, you’re going to find something wrong.
When you see a spinal surgeon, a lot of times, they’re not evaluating you and correlating your physical exam with your MRI or x-ray.
That’s really where the medical model has gone wrong in regards to treating a spine pathology. So, unless you’ve have a red flag where you need, and you’ve tried everything, then I would maybe consider it at that stage.
But until you’ve tried all conservative measures and care, then don’t proceed into a spinal surgery because it may not work.
