Failed Back Surgery

Some surgeries are not successful

Failed back surgery is a condition in which patients have had unsuccessful back or spine surgery to correct an abnormality, such as decompressing a nerve root or stabilizing a painful joint. When a patient, along with his or her surgeon, determines that surgery is the best option for pain control, there is always a risk that the procedure will not totally alleviate the pain. In fact, some conditions actually become worse over time as a result of the surgery.

Some of the pain resulting from failed back surgery may be related to implant failure, inadequate fusion, nerve damage during surgery, scar tissue, and more. Even in the best of scenarios, secondary problems can cause back pain following back surgery. Some measures can improve your chances of successful surgical results, including following the strict rehabilitation regimen to rebuild and strengthen the affected muscles.

Success Stories

MendmeShop ultrasound therapy is an excellent addition to any back rehabilitation routine after successful or failed back surgery. After going through the trauma of surgery, it is necessary to retrain the muscles to respond appropriately to movement, especially if the movement has been limited due to disc fusion. Ultrasound therapy is often included to speed healing in the affected muscles.

If you had back surgery years ago and you're dealing with the results of scar tissue pain, the MendMeShop Ultrasound System may be your best option for pain relief. It's the same type of therapy many chiropractors and physical therapists use on their patients every day
