Up to 40% of back surgeries fail. It is so common that the medical industry has created a label for back sufferers who fall into this category - Failed back surgery syndrome.
Almost all back surgery is avoidable providing the underlying cause, not the symptoms of back pain is addressed. Unfortunately, the vast majority of practitioners and modalities do not address the underlying cause leaving the back sufferer with no known solution other than surgery.
Some people respond well to back surgery, their symptoms are addressed, which eliminates their pain allowing them a fresh start to commence being more active and the ability to strengthen their body.
However, for a larger percentage (almost half) recover from surgery feeling no better in fact often worse than pre-back surgery.
Back surgery does not always address the underlying cause of back pain - only the symptoms.
No different to the conservative treatment received pre surgery that failed to provide a lasting solution to the chronic back pain sufferer.
The true cause of back pain is the postural weaknesses and imbalances that build up over a period of time. The structures of the back are compromised due to the constant lack of support and excessive load placed upon them. For the vast majority of back sufferers, it is an innocuous event or activity, one the person had down countless times prior that causes their back to go into a painful spasm. This event marks the commencement of a chronic pain cycle with the sufferer attempting all kinds of therapies that all address the symptoms (the damaged structures of the back) however never the underlying cause (the postural weaknesses and imbalances). The final resort is back surgery, which once again focuses on the damaged back structures, which does nothing for the weak muscles dedicated to supporting the back.
