Back surgery may help relieve some causes of back pain, but it should rarely be the first choice

Updated: Apr 26

Low back pain is one of the most common ailments seen by doctors. And, most back pain will respond to conservative care. When possible, conservative care should be exhausted before submitting to spinal surgery.

At Triangle Spinal Decompression, we treat patients conservatively, w/ positive results; decreasing pain & increasing range of motion. In most cases, patients avoid spinal surgery all together.

We use safe, effective & affordable computerized decompression to reduce pressure from spinal nerves & intervertebral discs. Decompression creates a vacuum or unloading; causing disc bulges & herniations to retract & reduce in size. This also helps to promote disc hydration & health by pushing nutrient rich fluid back into the disc.

Back surgery might be an option if conservative treatments haven't worked & your pain is persistent & disabling. Back surgery often more predictably relieves associated pain or numbness that goes down arms or legs. Different types of back surgery include: diskectomy, laminectomy, fusion & artificial disks. Should conservative care fail, we work with the best spinal surgeons in the area.

Statistically, >90% of people will respond to conservative care. Although we cannot help everyone, we have an enviable history of success. Call Triangle Spinal Decompression to discover how we may help. 919-469-8897
