Is Spine Fusion Surgery the Answer to Chronic Back Pain?

Unmanaged back pain can be debilitating and depressing, as it can limit one's mobility, energy level, and quality of life while also causing other joints and body parts to lock up as a result of accommodation to the pain. Severe pain can keep people from working, driving, or handling other necessary daily tasks such as lifting children or heavy objects, sleeping well, and so on. Pain medications and injections work for some, but for those with severe and unmanageable pain, surgery may be the best solution. Spine fusion surgery has been known to reduce and alleviate back pain and restore patients to their normal height, posture, and way of life. Spine fusion surgery joins vertebrae together to stabilize movement and eradicate misalignment.
