What is Failed Back Surgery Syndrome?

Failed back surgery syndrome is a general term that describes a condition where patients continue to have ongoing pain after a spine or back surgery. While modern surgical techniques are highly effective, there is never any guarantee of success, even when the procedure is performed by the best surgeons in the world. Some estimates suggest that tens of thousands of back surgery patients each year continue to experience pain or loss of movement even after surgery.

What Causes this Condition?

When back surgeries are not effective, it’s typically because the surgery failed to target the actual root cause of the patient’s pain. One of the reasons for failed back surgery is post-surgery scar tissue. In the aftermath of any surgery, the body creates scar tissue as a way to protect itself. If that scar tissue pinches a nerve root, it can create ongoing periodic or chronic pain that can continue for months and years after the surgery.

Regardless of the reason for your failed back surgery pain, it is vital to seek treatment as soon as possible to reduce discomfort and enjoy a full recovery. Pain caused by failed surgery rarely goes away without proper care.

What Are the Symptoms of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome?

Back surgery patients are often surprised to discover that they still have pain after their procedures. It’s important to recognize the symptoms of failed back surgery to ensure that you know when to seek help. Common symptoms include:

  • Pain in a different area of your spine
  • Numbness in the back that may extend to the legs
  • Slower than expected recovery
  • Stabbing pain in the back or unexpected spasms
  • Dependence on pain medication

While these symptoms can also be indicative of other back conditions, they should be given serious consideration when present in the aftermath of back surgery. Fortunately, there is effective treatment available to help alleviate your pain with non-invasive osteopathic care.
