Failed Back Surgery – FBSS Treatment in San Leandro
One of the most frustrating spine conditions for patients is failed back surgery syndrome, or FBSS. This is a back pain condition that occurs when a spinal surgery is unsuccessful at eliminating pain or a new pain disorder occurs after back surgery. At Allied Pain & Spine Institute, we offer diagnosis of spinal pain and failed back surgery-FBBS treatment in San Leandro, CA.
Diagnosing and treating neck and back pain can be difficult. Pain is experienced when spinal nerves send signals to the brain of discomfort, but the cause of the pain may be hard to pinpoint. If a physical condition is identified at the source of pain, such as a collapsed vertebra or a herniated disc, surgery may be recommended to fix the physical or mechanical problem. However, there can be other contributing factors that are causing the pain, resulting in ongoing pain after the surgery is completed, or FBSS.
No spinal surgery is 100% guaranteed to stop chronic pain or improve mobility. There is always some risk that the problem may persist or new spinal pain conditions could occur. For patients with failed back surgery syndrome that do not want to explore another surgery, pain management is the best solution for FBSS treatment.
