When to See a Spinal Surgeon

When to See a Spinal Surgeon

When Surgical Intervention is an Option

It’s normal to experience aches and pains that affect your neck and back every now and then. However, if your spinal discomfort starts to affect your quality of life, it may be time to make an appointment with a professional.

Seeing a Chiropractic Isn’t Helping

When it comes to chronic pain affecting the neck and back, it is common to be sent to a chiropractor for regular adjustments to help you find relief. While realignment can prove to be helpful for some conditions, others may worsen over time, requiring more long-lasting solutions for pain.

You Don’t Want to Rely on Pain Medications

In addition to physiotherapy and chiropractic adjustments, your doctor may also suggest prescribing medications to help manage your pain. While this can help to provide temporary relief, it doesn’t address the source of your pain.

Many people living with chronic pain also struggle with prescription drug misuse and addiction. Due to the addictive nature of commonly prescribed opioids, about 25% of patients on opioid therapy develop an addiction to that substance.

You Find Yourself Avoiding Everyday Activities Due to Pain

Although many aches and pains that affect the body can be ignored throughout the day, neck and back pain can be debilitating. When your pain begins to get in the way of everyday activities like bathing, getting dressed, or even walking up and down stairs—you may want to consider surgical intervention to help you to find relief.
