Yes. It’s an unfortunate fact that up to half of those who had spinal surgery discover a return of their original symptoms months or years after the surgery was performed. They then face the prospect of additional surgery. This, all too common occurrence, is known as “Failed Back Surgery Syndrome.” Chiropractic can be highly effective in managing this discouraging condition and may help prevent additional back surgeries. In fact, if chiropractic care is initially utilized, much back surgery can often be avoided altogether. The special techniques used in these cases are entirely safe, even for spines that have undergone fusion and instrumentation.
