Age comes with its issues, many of these issues are easily avoided and some are just the natural breakdown of the body through the processes of aging. Believe it or not, these processes begin from the moment we’re born. Many of them beginning to show themselves through the normal wear and tear of daily life before we’re even forty years old, failed back syndrome is one of those aging issues that loves to make itself known when we still consider ourselves to young.
It’s not unusual anymore for a person in their twenties to suffer from a herniated disk in the neck, cervical stenosis or lumbar stenosis. Many times, these issues can be treated by a chiropractor or through physical therapy, but more often than not a spinal surgeon will need to perform minimally invasive spine surgery. Your spinal surgeon will know what course of treatment will be best for you and for the ongoing treatment of your back.
When it comes to the issue of bulging disc surgery it’s important to realize that the issue of bulging discs comes with age. It’s only natural for the padding between the discs to degenerate to the point of pushing the discs down to flatten. It happens naturally with time and on many occasions, a spinal surgeon is needed to rectify the issue caused due to the collection of pinched nerves that got trapped between the discs when they flattened, this causes a great amount of pain and cannot, many times, be treated with holistic and noninvasive means and you should consult your spinal surgeon.
It’s important to keep in mind that the major cause leading up to the need of a spinal surgeon is age and time. There’s very little we can do, beyond remaining fit and active to stem the causes of back problems. This should be well explained to you before you have to make the decision of getting any form of back surgery by your spinal surgeon. If you do decide for the surgery, however, keep in mind that you will be taking on a long recovery process, but the benefits of the surgery far, far outweigh the risks. And most patients who have had back surgery report a much higher quality of life after the process.
