The importance of the health of any person is great. Nowadays, there are so many people all around the globe who have developed back pain. All animals with a backbone have their central nervous system located at the backbone. Massage and back exercise are ways that can be used to treat the pain of the spinal cord. Massage and exercises are abandoned in favor of back surgery if the complication continues. It is not recommended and must be considered as the last option when the back of the affected individual does not heal through massage or exercise. The decision of the method that will work out for the patient at hand lies squarely in the hands of the surgeon, and thus he/she should choose the best according to them. There are various surgery methods that can be employed in the treatment of back pain. The existing surgery methods are; spine fusion, laminectomy, discectomy, foraminotomy and spine disc replacement. Debated in the item are the existing treatment alternatives for back pain.
The first method to be discussed will be the spine fusion. Linking the specific segments of the backbone is the purpose of this type of surgical operation. The movements between adjacent backbones are removed through this surgical approach. The spondylolisthesis commonly referred to as the unstable pain is the back pain treated using this method.
The second treatment method is the discectomy. The fraction of the disc that is between the vertebrae can be done away with using this surgical operation. Discs are rubbery plates that exist between the bones on the spine whose main purpose is to act as glue to hold them together. The operation is done when the nerve pressure is high and thus needs to put in control.
Foramenotomy is the next treatment option. It is a surgical procedure which is employed in the treatment of the arm or neck pain with the aim of reducing the pressure on the nerves. The section of the bone that is affected is removed via the use of high-speed drill and consequently lessening the nerve pressure.
The other method that is used is the Spinal Disc Replacement. It is a process where the spinal disc is replaced by artificial means. It is a method that is rarely applied, but when all other treatment options fail, then this technique is used. Spine fusion at times has unwanted side effects, and this is where the spine disc replacement technique comes into play to deal with the specific spinal problems.
The last treatment option to be debated in this article is the Laminectomy. It is used to remove the lamina. Stenosis and spondylolisthesis are the most prevalent complications dealt with using this technique.
