As a result we have prevented hundreds of patients from going under the knife and ended their suffering without risk.
we increase the health of the spine as opposed to cutting it open and weakening the area.
In rare cases surgery is an appropriate treatment but that should be the exception as opposed to the rule.
To give you some idea of the epidemic that is low back surgery more than 500,000 patients undergo lumbar spine surgery each year. About 150 thousand of those surgeries are spinal fusions. Unfortunately, 50% of all surgical patients will fail to gain their desired outcome.
The Center for Low Back Pain states, “The first axiom for anyone in the healing arts is to ‘first do no harm’. Pain is NOT a reason to entertain surgery. . .”
Dr. Rosomoff M.D. was discussing “failed back surgery syndrome” of which there is a documented 50,000 cases, every year. While lecturing at the American Academy of Pain Mangement symposium, it was his opinion that surgery should only be performed in 1 in every 500 low back cases. He felt that that would eliminate 99% of all surgical cases.
In fact, 10% of patients will be WORSE after the initial surgery.
