Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Advanced Treatment Options
for a Healthy, Pain-Free Life

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

HealthQuest, an established multispecialty healthcare center in New York, offers a wide range of non-surgical therapies to ease pain due to spine conditions. We provide treatment for failed back surgery syndrome (FBSS), the condition characterized by persistent back pain after corrective spine surgery. Our pain treatment for FBSS is coordinated by specialists in various areas such as pain management, neurology, physical therapy, chiropractic and rehabilitation.

Symptoms of Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

Some people who have surgery to treat a low back disorder find that their condition does not improve even after the procedure. The most obvious symptom of FFBS is chronic back pain. To provide effective care, patients will be evaluated for other typical symptoms of the condition such as:

  • Inability to recover after surgery
  • Impaired mobility
  • Sharp, acute back pain
  • Numbness in the lower back
  • Pain radiating into the legs
  • Contraction of back muscles or back spasms
  • New pain at a level other the location treated

Treatment with Proven Conservative Modalities

Our non-surgical treatments for failed back surgery syndrome can significantly reduce pain and improve mobility. The pain management options we offer include:

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAID) medications
  • Physical therapy
  • Specialized exercises
  • Chiropractic care
  • Nerve blocks
  • Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS)
  • Epidural steroid injections
  • Game Ready Cold Therapy Compression for faster healing

Imaging tests such as x-ray and MRI scanning may be employed to confirm diagnosis. After arriving at an accurate diagnosis, our pain management specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan to address your condition. Various aspects of your pain such as severity, frequency and other relevant factors will be taken into consideration to determine the options that will work best for you.
