Treatment of Failed Back Surgery: Don’t Give Up

Picture7Failed back surgery syndrome, also known as FBSS, is more common than people many believe.

If you’ve gone through surgery and didn’t receive the results you were hoping for, you may begin to believe there’s nothing else you can do. Fortunately, this isn’t the case.

Although there are many challenges associated with FBSS, there are also a variety of steps you can take to reclaim your health and feel better about the future.

First things first, you need to consult with a spine specialist who has experience and knowledge of FBSS.

From there, your medical team can order a new set of imaging studies to assess the injury and any implanted surgical hardware. Additionally, you can expect your doctor to conduct a physical exam while carefully reviewing your health history.

At that point, you can discuss the best strategy for moving forward. Some of your options may include:

·      Physical therapy

·      Corrective surgery

·      The use of epidural injections

·      Spinal cord stimulation

There is no easy way to cure failed back surgery syndrome, but that doesn’t mean you should assume you have to live with the pain and discomfort.
