    When is spinal surgery a viable option?

    Non-responsiveness to conservative treatments can greatly lower a patient’s quality of life, and because of this a patient should look into spine surgery when his or her back pain has not decreased following months of non-surgical back treatment.  Neurological problems such as cervical myelopathy (or “foot drop”) require urgent attention. The key is to choose surgery if the pain is so severe that it interferes with your quality of life.
