Minimally invasive options for relieving cervical spine pain
In years past, if you were experiencing persistent cervical spine pain, fusion was your last good option after more conservative treatments had failed. Yet, because traditional open spine fusion is a major operation with serious potential drawbacks, far too many people were put in the position of weighing their neck pain against the risks of surgery.
Today, however, there are other options known as minimally invasive spine procedures. These outpatient procedures relieve the same sources of cervical spine pain without the hassle of traditional open spine fusion. To learn more about the advantages of minimally invasive spine surgery, read the following article or contact Laser Spine Institute with any questions.
