More Knowledge, Less Invasive Care, Less Back Surgery

It seems the more one knows, the less one does ... in the realm of spine surgery that is. What about you? Do you suffer with Burlington and Hamilton back pain or leg pain or neck pain or arm pain? Are you rushing to surgery for relief? If you are reading this, you likely want to know more. You are looking for more information before making such a decision, information you can trust, information to possibly help you avoid a first (or second or third) spine surgery. Spinal Care Clinic respects your time and your desire for information and knowledge before you make that decision about back surgery as your option for relief. Spinal Care Clinic feels you’ll appreciate these researchers’ insights about back surgery and back surgeons and your consideration of the Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic approach offered for back pain relief.

From researchers at such prominent spine institutions such as Cleveland Clinic, University of Southern California Los Angeles, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and University of Wisconsin Department of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation comes detailed information about spine surgery statistics. Spine surgeons disagree about 75% of the time as to how to treat low back pain. (1) More specifically, these factors are influential:
  • Location: Disagreement was highest among southwest surgeons (82%) and lowest among midwest surgeons (69%).
  • Practice Type: Disagreement was lower among academic practice surgeons (56%) and higher among private practice surgeons (79%). Academic-based practice surgeons are about 4 times more likely of choosing no surgery than those in private practice.
  • Specialty Training: Surgeons with fellowship training were twice as likely to not do surgery than those without such training. (1)

And if you have degenerative lumbar scoliosis specifically, there is confusion, too. There is variability as to non-operative and operative management, as to the appropriateness of surgery as well as to the specific surgical procedures that should be used. (2) Spinal Care Clinic is here to help lessen the confusion and attempt relief with gentle Burlington and Hamilton chiropractic care of your spine.
