Considerations of Burlington and Hamilton Back Surgery for a Herniated Disc

The frustration of Burlington and Hamilton back pain: It hurts. It messes up life. It doesn’t always react positively to the best-intended care programs: back surgery or conservative. That is the reason Spinal Care Clinic exists. Spinal Care Clinic is here to help Burlington and Hamilton back pain and neck pain patients uncover an alternative that works for their Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief goal.


There are lots of Burlington and Hamilton back pain relief plan options! Recent research discloses some interesting findings. Let’s consider opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There’s no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between using Tylenol and taking powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin guards the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and blocked disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin does this. There is hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this study? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc seen on MRI was observed in all of 9 patients who felt back pain and sciatic leg pain, refused back surgery, and demonstrated no motor deficit! It took a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment took a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That’s exciting news! The discs resorbed.


What compels a patient to decide on Burlington and Hamilton back surgery over other options? The patient’s ideas about the treatment may potentially based on insufficient information. The time it takes a patient to decide may be hurried because of scheduling when the patient is one who needs time to really think about the options. The patient’s not wanting to disturb the system, upset the healthcare provider by refusing recommended treatment. The patient’s past experiences with treatment options as taken by relatives or friends and the resulting good or bad outcomes. Choosing back surgery or a non-surgical treatment plan for low back and/or leg pain due to a disc herniation is a considerably complex decision.
