Surgical Consultation for back surgery

  • surgical-consult

Dealing with back pain and considering back surgery can be very stressful and cause a great deal of worry. Seeking medical advice to act upon your pain correctly is critical.  Our holistic view of back pain management necessitates stepping back as a physician in order to look at the patient and the causative ‘picture’ as a whole (holistic) when treating chronic (ongoing, episodic) back pain.

For over 15 years Natural Medicine and Rehabilitation has been helping their patients manage pain with a holistic approach which integrates the services of physical therapy, chiropractic and acupuncture for long term pain management and to help strengthen the spine.

Failure to condition the spinal joints and muscles regularly, especially with known disc and joint problems, will place more stress on those structures and deepen the problem. If you do not exercise these areas, or even worse, you don’t exercise at all, it only stands to reason that you are not getting any stronger and likely getting weaker. Allowing the spine to continue to weaken significantly increases stress on the discs and the potential need for surgery.  And unfortunately, a weak spine that needs surgery is at greater risk of failed back surgery.

We believe there is no way around the need to get your spine strong.
Strengthening your spine is either to avoid surgery, defer it or to strengthen
and rehabilitate your spine after an ultimately needed surgery.  

In some cases, surgery is an unavoidable solution. For these patients, we are excited to introduce our affiliation with Dr. John Lipani, Neurosurgeon and the founding Director of Princeton Neurological Surgery Spine Institute and the JD Lipani Radiosurgery Institute. Dr. Lipani will be the surgical consultant for NMR’s spine related cases. Dr. Lipani specializes in minimally invasive and complex spinal surgery.
