Failed Back or Neck Surgery
Most people will, at some point in their life, experience back or neck pain. Unfortunately severe and chronic pain can motivate people to have surgery especially when many other conservative therapies have failed.
It is important to understand that sometimes surgery is necessary, however, all options must be explored prior to having surgery.
Over 25% of the patients who come to the Minnesota Disc Institute have already had a spine / disc surgery of some sort. The reason for this is that surgery, even if absolutely necessary, is not making your disc healthier. Surgery may take pressure off nerves, etc. but it is not creating a healthier disc, and the problem with having surgery on a disc is that the surgically cut disc will still have pressure on it after the surgery, and it will still not be “pumping” properly, and will continue to degenerate and die. Additionally, other surrounding discs have to compensate and they will begin to wear out faster as well.
When evaluating any treatment option, including the treatment at the Minnesota Disc Institute, you must ask yourself “Is this treatment going to make my discs healthier, or unhealthier? The great news is that the NSD Method used at the Minnesota Disc Institute excels in helping discs become healthier, even if you’ve had surgery.
