Why You Need to do Everything to Avoid Surgery for Back Pain


try anything before you get surgery the goal for you is to avoid back surgery if you watch one video and only one video it’s got to be this one because this one is why you need to avoid the surgery this may change your life and may change it forever why do we do this we do this to give you tools i think today is possibly the most important tool doctors are not obligated to report outcomes so you don’t know very often what the outcome of a procedure could and should be we’re going to give this really good tools today we’re going to give you some statistics and we’re going to help you understand isn’t working we’re going to help you understand better the consequences and the outcomes of surgery because we had a patient he had two surgeries and there’s a progression and you have the normal progression so i want you to see the progression first of all case study 997 of 1020 67-year old man all back pain and sciatica 25 years had two surgeries before he saw us laminectomy and a fusion and the fusion is the most invasive of all the surgeries for your spine most complicated and probably the least effective outcomes so 25 years about thing i did say that right 25 years of back pain so this is an ongoing thing for him slowly breaking down we know the longer you have back pain the worst the problem becomes because of the degenerative cascade once the problem starts it progresses and as it gets worse things start to break down his case he tried physical therapy now we say that the therapy for back pain it’s kind of a slippery slope once you start heading down that path and you’re not slowing down at all you’re going to wind up at the bottom and the bottom is very often the fusion so in his case this this is probably the most important part he had physical therapy a little better a lot better and he had multiple physical therapy’s over the years sometimes you get better and consumer go on the penny come back and get worse and you had the injections injections sorry the narcotics hydrocodone that’s the pain medicine that’s the highly addictive pain medicine that’s the one that causes 20,000 overdoses per year yeah the cortisone injections we talk about the cortisone injections the other day about a 50-percent accessory so we’ve gone through these therapies not gotten any better and then what they decided he needed a laminectomy when the spine breaks down and the opening is smaller they take the bone out that’s called a laminectomy they pull the lamina out of there i’ll show you what it looks like a minute after that because that didn’t get better that’s not failed back surgery syndrome end up having the fusion and the outcomes of a fusion post-surgery meaning his second surgery the outcomes are minimal minimal I want to see that because i want you to avoid this this is the slippery slope it’s a progression this is the standard therapy back pain PT doesn’t work hydrocodone doesn’t work cortisone doesn’t work and it going to surgery okay that didn’t work wound up down here guess what that didn’t work how do we know because it came into our clinic that’s how we know so what happens is the opening for the nerve comes out it’s physically smaller pinches the nerve ok finishing the nerve so what they’ll do is we’ll cut out that part of the opening cut right out so they’ll come up this part of all right here and the goal is to free up the space so this is gone cut all this out that’s called a laminectomy freed up the space space didn’t work so what happens next fusion and what they do the fusion is they put screws directly into the body of the vertebrae and then fuse it all together with these rods in the back rides screws boom hold everything together that’s the fusion ok very invasive highly invasive procedure takes a long time the recovery takes a long time guess what a very high failure rate we took this from a website of a surgeon the surgeon his job is to fix fusions that don’t work and here’s this stats he says sixty percent of a single-level fusion and a single there will be two vertebrae sixty percent of those fail a eighty five percent of a three-level fusion failed so they put it in three vertebrae seventy-six percent of all patients after a fusion still have back pain get this is a half a million fusions per year this is important because it’s a slippery slope don’t want to wind up at the bottom of the slope study clinical outcome of instrument fusion so the clinical outcome of patients that had a fusion they had diffusion because the first surgery did work which is our patients same thing same exact thing 35% have a good recovery 65-percent are no different that’s this study right here ok this was done 2012 so it’s a fairly recent that brand new but it’s fairly recent a fusion post failed back surgery syndrome best case you’re looking at thirty-five percent chance of getting better it’s a slippery slope if you’re in this category that’s when you start taking more narcotics and start chasing everything are chasing your symptoms so the goal for you is to make sure you try everything before you have surgery now national institute of health did a study to identify why so many fusions fail and the answer probably is obvious but the answer is because they didn’t treat the right problem the problem they treated was not the cause of their symptoms and basically they had the wrong diagnosis in eighty-five percent fail in some cases we have a nice step solution this is the story there’s a 9 step solution one of our steps is to identify exactly what is pinching the nerve its proprietary its patented and it’s highly highly highly effective we have a study of our own the published how effective it is we identify the source and we treat the source without drugs or surgery back pain has evolved this is part of the evolution of back pain it has evolved we don’t treat just the muscles we don’t freak just the joints we treat the muscles the joints and the discs and by treating the discs we can free up the space where the nerve is pinched that’s the key to what we do if you’re on the slippery slope you need to try everything to get better our patient post two surgeries one laminectomy one fusion we diagnosed him with a spondylolisthesis herniated a five-man knew it but the point is 25 years of all the wear and terror caused all these different problems complete breakdown the system spondylolisthesis shifting herniated disc pinching the nerve degeneration disc breaking down as part of the degenerative cascade bulging disk like a flat tire ok against the stenosis they pulled out the stenosis from a laminectomy now when you came into our clinic his sciatica was a nine his oswestry disability index was a 42 oswestry disability index is a questionnaire that we used to identify how disabled you are how much disability is the result of your pain so in his case you have pretty high disability absolutely one person was a candidate for another surgery went into our program at the end of our program his back pain was a 2 his sciatica was a 2 and Oswestry disability index was a 16 our goal is to get below 20 into the minimal ok so we had a little bit of pain but it was profoundly better he was profoundly better and had to continue down the path was on you want up with another fusion and are worse yet have been addicted to narcotics which is very common so our goal we have a 9 step process our goals take you from pain and suffering to do what you love to do for a lifetime and the key is the evolution of the back pain we treat the disk this is the next level of back treatment this is what we do if you like what you hear today I want to like our facebook page i want you to share our information with somebody that might benefit from what we do it’s not too not it’s not uncommon that people probably have no idea what the options are the key to all this is making sure that you don’t wind up slipping down the slope ok at the same time subscribe to our YouTube channel follow us on instagram and follow us on twitter we do this every day tomorrow we’re doing tips wednesday we’re doing stretches thursday we’re doing exercises friday we’re going to food so our goal is to make you better have you live a better life without back pain that’s our goal and our vision that’s it have a good night thank you very much and be careful and drive safe

    I'm intrigued but I just see one Pubmed study (on whole body vibration & traction) but can you tell me what to type online to find the "several studies that have been published in medical journals."?

    I have been experiencing problems while urinating recently, most likely due to a lumbar herniated disc, should I get surgery?

    Is post laminectomy syndrome the same as FBSS? I was diagnosed with PLS after a microdiscectomy on L4-5 central disc herniation…the same disc herniated post op, and I developed retrolisthesis, severe DDD. After a 2 level TLIF with instrumentation, the back and leg pain never ceased, along with scar tissue formation on the nerve roots. Since then, there are degenerative changes in my whole spine, disc bulges, arthritis, facet arthropathy, and stenosis. I have a drug pump and spinal cord stimulator. Have I reached the very end as far as corrective treatment?

    This guy dosen't even know what a 3 level fusion is, and he says he can fix you. What a crock of $#!%.. This video lacks so much information it is unbelievable. SCAM, SCAM, SCAM. I speak from experience from both sides of the spectrum. The only thing he got right that everyone knows already is, AVOID SURGERY IF YOU CAN.

    Typical chiropractor. Surgery can help with back conditions the chiros are unable to alleviate. (But they will book you for as many sessions as you will pay for.) Chiropractic is quackery — it's underlying theory was disproven generations ago. They hate medical treatments, medications, and surgery of all kinds, because to them treatment that work are competition.

    I was just told I need a back surgery & it freaks me out! I'm a 40 year old female that has had daily pain for 25 years & I'm just tired of hurting. No physical therapist or even a chiropractor will touch me at this point & I'm a recovering addict (clean for 10 years) so what can I do? I'm just so sick of pain. I've been in bed now for the past week unable to hardly move due to the new pain I'm having & can't hardly walk anymore. What do I do?
