Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Wed, Dec 04, 2013 @ 08:55 AM

Sage advice for back pain sufferers: Be certain that you’ve tried every alternative, including spinal rehydration, before even thinking about back surgery to cure common causes of back pain. Surgery and anesthesia, by their very nature, carry significant risk and expense. Back surgery, in particular, has a less-than-admirable success rate. It just doesn’t make good sense to ignore safe and proven, natural treatments and therapies in favor of a drastic, invasive and irreversible surgical treatment.

Is Surgery Necessary for Cervical and Lumbar Stenosis?

Posted by Dr. Jeff Winternheimer D.C. on Tue, Nov 26, 2013 @ 10:30 AM

Spinal surgery for stenosis is typically an elective procedure. Surgeons may recommend an invasive procedure if you have severe pain in your leg(s) and/or experience numbness and your life is drastically effected by symptoms. If you haven’t been able to move about well for a long period of time, spinal surgery may be suggested—but it is important to be aware that symptoms can return after surgery. In addition, nerve impairment symptoms, like numbness or awkwardness when walking, may not improve or may return after surgery. It’s crucial to get a second opinion from a back specialist prior to having non-emergency surgery.

The severity of the pain and the suddenness can be alarming—but it’s very common. In the vast majority of cases, this back pain is not related to a serious disease or severe back problem, but could be due to something simple like muscle spasm or another musculoskeletal cause. When the exact origin of back pain isn’t clear, it’s referred to as nonspecific low back pain. This “mechanical” back pain is generally eased by lying down flat and made worse when you move your back, sneeze or cough.
