Back Surgery: Is It Right for You? Or Can You Avoid It?

Back Surgery: Is It Right for You? Or Can You Avoid It?

This is the fourth article in this series of blog posts about common types of surgery. So far, we’ve talked about shoulder, knee and hip surgeries, and I’ve saved my least favorite for last: back surgery.

If you’ve had any of these types of surgeries before, you can probably appreciate the idea that surgery is always the last option. It’s the option you choose when you’ve tried everything else, you’re still in significant pain, and you’re realizing that the pain is causing you to miss out on the things you enjoy in life.

In today’s post (video at the bottom), I’m going to describe the most common types of back surgeries, and I’ll follow it up with some important tips and advice to help you figure out the best course of action.

Self-Correction Technique for SI Joint Pain (Anterior Rotation)

Sacro-Iliac Joint (SIJ) pain can be tricky to treat at times, and it’s often overlooked by doctors and physical therapists alike.

This is because changes in the alignment of the SI joints won’t typically show up on imaging, such as x-rays or MRIs.

Instead, we use different techniques to diagnose SIJ pain, such as your pelvic landmarks and leg lengths.

When this information is combined with your physical exam, we can usually narrow down the alignment of the SI joints, and from there we can figure out how to get you back in good alignment and out of pain.

And while this is difficult to do on your own at home, I wanted to share an effective treatment technique for the most common type of SIJ pain we see, which is an anterior rotation.

In the video, I’ll explain how to assess your pelvic alignment, and then I’ll go into the technique.
