Patients and their families are you usually left with more questions than answers when considering back pain surgery. Treatment choices for back pain will depend on the source, severity, persistence, and trajectory of the pain. If the back pain is not accompanied by leg pain, then back pain surgery should not be the first choice.
For patients who have nonspecific pain, or have other underlying conditions such as arthritis, there are many recommended alternatives to surgery. This may include physical therapy, core strengthening, and weight loss.
