How do I know if spine surgery is right for me?
When conservative (non-surgical) treatments such as medication, physical
therapy, injections and exercise have been tried, but still do not alleviate
your back or neck pain, it may be time to seriously consider undergoing
back surgery. Your final decision to proceed with spine surgery or not,
will greatly depend on the level of pain your are experiencing, the limitations
to your normal daily activities, how extensive the surgery is and if there
are any adverse complications if surgery is delayed (e.g. foot drop).
