Why A Consultation With Dr. Rothbart Is Different Than With Other Doctors
Profile Of A Typical Candidate For Therapy
Are you contemplating back surgery for a herniated disc, back trauma, arthritis or spinal stenosis (an abnormal narrowing of the canal where the spinal nerves exit the spinal cord)? If so, you need to know what your surgeon isn’t telling you.
According to recent studies, 80% of the American population will suffer with back pain. And because of this, more than 500, 000 back surgeries are performed in the USA alone.
Typically, if you ask your surgeon what you can expect in your recovery, the two most common responses are; ‘Your recovery will be fairly uneventful and complete and your back pain will be resolved’ or ‘Your post-op recovery may be difficult, but your back pain will go away.’ Both these claims are untrue.
In a study completed by Richard Deyo MD, a professor at Oregon Health and Science University, it was concluded that 90% of the back surgeries performed are unnecessary and ineffective. In most cases the surgery will fail.
Why Back Surgery Is Usually Unnecessary, Ineffective and Often Fails
First of all, your surgeon must find the reason (the cause) for your chronic back pain. The reason may seem obvious, but often it’s not. For example, you may have a herniated disc and your doctor is telling you that this is the cause of your back pain. Seems logical, doesn’t it? But the reality is that herniated discs – in many cases – don’t cause back pain.
But, in spite of this fact, lots of people go under the knife to repair their herniated disc. So, is it any wonder that they still have back pain after their back surgery?
Back pain is usually not due to disc herniations. It’s also not usually due to spinal stenosis. And often it’s not even due to arthritis! In these cases, the back pain is merely a symptom of an underlying cause. And because the underlying cause was not known by your surgeon; you were submitted to back surgery. And this is the repetitive reason why so many back surgeries fail in the United States.
If the cause of your back pain is not first correctly identified and then effectively treated, your symptoms – your back pain – will continue. In fact, after your back surgery, chances are good that you will feel even worse.
I’m not saying that all back surgery is unnecessary and should be avoided. For example, in pathology resulting from trauma to your back (such as a fracture of your vertebra or a tumor), surgery is successful in order to eliminate your back pain.
But how about when your spinal x-rays reveal a disc herniation, your doctor states that your back pain is due to this herniation, and that surgery will get rid of your pain?
When you hear that diagnosis, my recommendation is to run (don’t walk) out of his/her office before they talk you into doing something that you will greatly regret. Then get another opinion from some one who actually understands what’s causing your back pain.
In my 45 years of research and clinical practice, I have found that the majority of patients finding themselves in the above scenario, have the PreClinical Clubfoot Deformity. http://athletics.wikia.com/wiki/PreClinical_Clubfoot_Deformity And it is this inherited, abnormal foot structure that causes their excruciating chronic back pain.
I have also found that by stabilizing this common foot structure, their chronic back pain greatly reduces or completely disappears, without the need of invasive back surgery.
