Help for Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Even with easy access to chiropractic treatments, acupuncture and other alternative health care, many Americans still choose to undergo invasive back surgery rather than attempt less painful modes of care. Though the reasons for doing so vary, many back surgery patients find that the procedure left them with little results; some even experience new pain after surgery. This is often referred to as failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS).

FBSS, according to various experts, is the chronic back or neck pain that occurs when a spine surgery doesn’t achieve its expected results. Factors that contribute to this recurring pain include:

  • recurrent disc herniation
  • spinal nerve pressure
  • inhibited joint mobiity
  • scar tissue
  • facet or sacroiliac joint degeneration
  • muscle loss

Symptoms of failed back surgery syndrome include dull and aching pain involving the back or neck and possibly the legs and even arms. Patients often also complain of sharp, stabbing and burning pain in the extremities.

For those in Woodstock who have undergone the painful and invasive procedure of back surgery, yet still suffer from chronic pain, relief is available. Our chiropractors at Innovative Health & Wellness are trained and knowledgeable in the challenges of treating FBSS and can help manage your pain through gentle yet effective chiropractic adjustments. Your care will be personalized to you, addressing your particular issues to deliver the best results.

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

Before:235lbs, Now 165lbs, Goal 155lbs.

Before:235lbs, Now 165lbs, Goal 155lbs.
I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
