Spinal surgery has been found responsible for a condition called Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS – 722.80). This painful and debilitating condition can be avoided by following these four important steps:
- Do your homework and get to the truth: Spine surgery does not improve the quality of your spine or discs any more than cutting leaves off of a dying plant improves the quality of the plant, (if you have a bulging, herniated, or degenerative disc…then your disc is dying). Cutting will not save you or your dying disc in the end. You will not be happy with the result.
- Discover that your disc can self-repair: Yes, it is a God-given, physiological, non-debatable fact that your discs have mechanisms for self-repair. Surgery does not provide this means of self-repair. In fact, it has the complete opposite, destructive effect. Disc self-repair has very specific requirements, just like a plant has specific requirements to self-repair, (water, sun, soil, etc). Providing a wilting plant the water or sun gives it the missing requirement needed to self-repair. Cutting leaves off a wilting plant does not meet the dying leaf’s requirements…just like painting leaves green, putting shots of nitrogen in the soil, fusing the leaves together, or staking up the plant with titanium hardware will not meet the necessary requirements for self-repair if the plant lacks water.
- Know what’s at stake and how much your life matters: Spinal surgery has one of the worst outcomes in all of medicine. In fact, it is the only medical procedure failure that has earned its own diagnostic name and code (Failed Back Surgery Syndrome ICD-9 CODE of 722.80) assigned by the World Health Organization’s Ninth Revision, International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9). This epidemic of failed spinal surgery is now a specific diagnosis doctors give patients. Think about this: everyday, people are diagnosed with Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS) as their problem, which they didn’t have before surgery, but is now a permanent diagnosis and disability. Just ask your friends and family how many people they know with failed spine surgery. The only person who benefits is the surgeon, (and that’s not a dig at the surgeon). The surgeon’s only responsibility is to show up and perform the cutting that the surgeon is trained to do. The surgeon is not responsible for your outcome and your future; you are! So choose wisely. Your decisions shape your future, and now is the time to make wise decisions while you still can–because you cannot unscramble a scrambled egg. Surgery leaves serious wreckage in its wake, simply because people don’t know what’s at stake and end up being easy, unsuspecting victims.
- Get a new vision for what you want: Without a vision people perish. Don’t go down the same, destructive, predictable path and think you will be lucky enough to get a different outcome. Even the “best” plant trimmer on the planet can’t save the plant or leaves from dying with only his cutting tools, because the requirements for the plant to self-repair will still be missing. The “best” of what fails, is still a failure.
Backed by two independent, third-party research studies, The Disc Institute® is uniquely focused on disc problems, conditions and symptoms. We routinely treat conditions like bulging disc, degenerative disc disease, herniated disc, and sciatica, to name a few. Disc issues can affect anyone of any age, but the outdated standard of care does not address the cause, and that leads patients to ineffective and dangerous procedures like epidural injections and spinal surgery.
Treatment at The Disc Institute® employs our own exclusive IntraDiscNutrosis®. This is a nonsurgical process that supports the simple biological fact that discs are comprised of living tissue, which has the ability to self-repair. IntraDiscNutrosis® is a completely unique form of treatment that turns back on the discs repair process: it is not physical therapy, chiropractic care, pain management, or spinal surgery. There is no down time, no pain during the procedure, and no side effects.
The Disc Institute® has one primary goal: to help you avoid spinal surgery. Dr. Joseph Mannella (Founder & CEO of The Disc Institute®), and his team have personally developed this unique treatment and its protocols, and they achieved the best solution with the highest patient outcomes (backed by studies) in a setting that is wholly devoted to healing and repairing bad discs while accomplishing lasting pain relief with a positive impact on the quality of life of the patient.
