6 Benefits Of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery!

6 Benefits Of Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery!

The spine plays a very crucial role, both from a person’s movement and sensation point of view. It carries the nervous supply for a lot of internal organs and the lower body. By virtue of its structure, it also helps in movement through the disks. Due to various reasons, spinal injury is common, causing pain along the back, lower extremities, neck etc.

Medicines and exercise are the first line of treatment for most spinal injuries. The issue, however, is that these only provide relief from the pain and the medicines, but do not actually ‘rectify’ the underlying problem. Whether it is a herniated disk or a pinched nerve, the medicines and exercise can relieve the symptoms, but the disk continues to be herniated and the nerve continues to be pinched. Definite treatment is in the form of surgery, and with recent advancements in the field of spinal surgery, there are minimally invasive surgical options, which provide complete cure with minimal recovery time. Some of the benefits of this are listed below-

  1. Smaller incision compared to traditional surgical procedures, where only the injured area is accessed

  2. The surrounding tissues are untouched, unless they are injured and require repair

  3. Lesser bleeding compared to earlier techniques

  4. Lesser painful procedure

  5. Reduced hospitalization period

  6. Quicker recovery and return to normal activities

The question, however, is whether this is indicated in everybody. A detailed discussion with your surgeon keeping the below points in mind will help identify the answer for this. The main driver should be the answer to the question – will the surgery be able to effectively relieve you of the pain and symptoms? Additionally, the following factors help in getting better results out of a minimally invasive spinal surgery.

  1. Presence of symptoms relating to nerve compression, including pain from the spine down the leg.

  2. Recent onset of symptoms, with pain starting days to months before seeing the doctor. This indicates the condition is relatively new and so damage is minimal, indicating favorable outcome. Chronic pain conditions take slightly longer time compared to recent injuries.

  3. People with active lifestyle who engage in regular physical exercise are likely to have better benefits from the minimally invasive procedure.

  4. Smoking reduces blood flow to the spine, leading to disk degeneration and weakening of bones. Healing is highly slowed down and recovery is overall delayed.

  5. Excessive weight puts strain on the back, and so healing can be delayed or badly affected with more complications. It is not a contraindication, but be prepared for a longer recovery period.

Talk to your doctor keeping these points in mind, and you can bid farewell to your back pain forever. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.

I got my ankle twisted on 5th october. The x-ray showed no bone fracture and the doctor said its a ligament injury. I was having a temporary plaster for 7 days. After that I used crap bandage to walk. But then also I was having pain so consulted another doctor and he put an ankle cast for 15 days then also I didn't got any relief. So I consulted another doctor in my hometown so he told me to cut the cast and start physiotherapy. Its been almost 2 weeks of therapy. I hav some relief but I still didn't got that confidence of being fine. I am totally confused right now. I don't know how much more time it will take.

Please don't get confused. 1. Your present line of treatment is correct continue with physiotherapy AND add treatment below. 2. Take Ultrasound therapy 1 MHz, 1.2 W/cm2, 6 min 3. Contrast bath 2 times a day. {ask your physio a method} 4. Wear ankle support. 5. Elevate your leg while sleep with pillow beneath. 6. Don't do exercise which is painful. 7. Be patients because ligament injury takes time to heal. Hope to get will soon.

The issue of long term medication is worry some. But there are long term studies in favour of medication. You need to be in constant touch with your doctor. Doctor will decide and change the medications. A sort of rotation of medication is required. Don't take medications without doctors advice.

Chronic overuse or misuse of a muscle can cause pain, such as with poor ergonomics. Trauma and even stress can lead to tense and painful muscles. Some medications, such as ACE inhibitors and statins, are known for causing muscle pain. Imbalanced potassium and calcium can have muscle effects, and certain infections, such as influenza, Lyme disease, and malaria, impact the functioning of the muscles. Other less well known conditions, such as lupus and rhabdomyolysis, can cause chronic myalgia as well. Treatment would then center on finding what is causing the problem and treating that primary cause. FOR MEDICATION CONSULT ONLINE IN PRIVATE
