Because your spine is connected to so many parts of your body, any part of your body can be affected when it has problems. And many things can cause problems with your spine, from conditions to diseases to injuries. If your spine is starting to impact your quality of life, it may be time to consider back surgery.

Because of the risk of complications, you should only consider surgery when the benefits clearly outweigh the risks. Make an appointment with your physician as well as the Spine Institute of North America in order to get professional medical input. In the meantime, there are seven major reasons to get back surgery, and we will discuss them in the next few blogs.

  1. You have a severe injury
    • Optimally, you will have time to consider treatment options and make an informed decision about how to move forward. If your injury is severe enough, you may go into back surgery quickly.
  2. You cannot function as usual
    • We all know that our mobility decreases as we get older, but we should still be able to function. If your spine issue is preventing you from functioning, something serious may be going on. Do not let it hold you back; seek treatment.

In the coming blogs, we will discuss other reasons to start the process of getting back surgery. We know that spinal issues can have a profound impact on your life, and there is no reason for you to be held back. We offer minimally invasive spine surgery that can free you to live your life.
