Back Surgery, Just Say No!

Lolly04 Aug 2016

A recent study found most back surgeries to be ineffective.

The results, based on patient data from 23,320 treatment reviews and ratings, reveal that 84% of the patients are still in pain years after surgery.

Patients rated the outcome of four types of back surgeries for lower back pain lower than most other treatments, with an average rating of 2 out of 5.

The study also shows that having one back surgery leads to more surgeries, as 54% of patients had two or more back surgeries. And more surgeries led to a higher likelihood of being in pain.
