Failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS) is a condition that occurs when an individual continues to experience chronic pain or disability following one or more spinal surgeries.
The condition is characterized by persistent pain and dysfunction. They may result from the original underlying condition that required surgery, or from the surgical procedure itself.
The symptoms of FBSS may include:
- Chronic pain in the back, legs, or arms
- Muscle weakness or numbness
- Limited range of motion
- Difficulty standing or walking
- Neuropathic pain, such as burning or tingling sensations
The causes of FBSS can vary depending on the individual and their specific condition.
Some potential causes may include:
- Incomplete surgical decompression or removal of damaged tissue
- Recurrent disc herniation or Spinal Stenosis
- Scar tissue formation or nerve damage from the surgery
- Psychological factors such as depression, anxiety, or stress
Diagnosis of FBSS typically involves a physical exam, evaluation of medical history, and imaging tests such as X-rays, CT scans, or MRI scans to identify the underlying cause of the symptoms.
Typical Treatment options may include medications for pain management, chiropractic care, physical therapy, spinal cord stimulation, and in some cases, revision surgery.
It is important to note that FBSS can be a complex and challenging condition to manage. Successful treatment may require a multidisciplinary approach that includes input from a variety of healthcare professionals, including chiropractors, pain management specialists, neurologists, and physical therapists.
