Have you had back surgery without a successful result? Do you still have pain? You’re not alone. Reports estimate that 20-40% of people can still have continued issues after their back surgery.
It might sound odd that you can still have issues after back surgery, but it can stem from several causes.
Causes of pain after failed back surgery
If you suffer from pain after your failed back surgery, most people typically experience it about three months after surgery. In some cases, your pain can continue to get worse as time goes on.
Your pain can develop for a number of reasons, including:
- Degenerative changes that can happen after surgery
- Excessive inflammatory healing
You can also develop fibrotic tissue in your epidural area during your healing period, which can irritate your spinal nerves.
In addition, if the source of your pain wasn’t properly identified, you could experience a failed back surgery and continue to have the same recurring issue.
You can feel confident when you come in to see our team. We give you a thorough exam to identify the source of your pain so we can treat you effectively.
Relief therapies for failed back surgery
Our team uses conservative methods to alleviate your pain, using interventional and regenerative medicine.
After your evaluation, we can determine the best solution for you. Our recommendations might include a nerve block, an epidural steroid injection, radiofrequency, or ablation.
Our regenerative medicine method includes platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP), using your own blood to rejuvenate cells and tissues in affected areas. The procedure only takes about 30 minutes and has proven effective results for many patients.
During your consultation with our team, we talk about the many different ways we can relieve your pain. The severity of your condition can determine the right treatment for you.
