Failed Back Surgery Syndrome
Failed back surgery syndrome is expressed through pain that continues after surgery. It is important to understand the word “failed” does not necessarily indicate the surgery failed to address the intended issue. The failure exists in that the patient continues to experience pain or lack of mobility after surgery. Furthermore, identifying the exact cause of the failure is difficult – even with an MRI.
Where there is no clear indication of the cause of continued pain, the cause is often attributed to scar tissue. However, diagnosing the source of failed back surgery syndrome is complicated due to the complex nature of the spine and the network of nerves in the back. Regardless of the cause, you will need treatment and rehabilitation to address the issue and manage your pain.
