The decision to undergo invasive surgery for chronic pain is sometimes unavoidable, but this should really be the absolute last resort, when all other treatment options have been exhausted.
We’ve noticed in our clinic that quite a number of patients have undergone invasive back surgeries due to chronic pain. Yet their pain has persisted post-surgery with a number of my patients even reporting worsened pain due to new scars. This is commonly known as Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS). Between 5 to 40% of patients undergoing back surgeries experience this complication.
Whilst Low Level Laser is very effective in helping to manage the side effects and pain post-surgery, I often wish I had the opportunity to see these patients before they go under the knife. We’ve been treated hundreds of patients with acute and chronic back pain, with many getting their lifestyle back from debilitating pain. Many have avoided the need to proceed to surgery.
