Dear Vori,

I have a friend who just had back surgery. Will I need back surgery?

Dear Fingers Crossed,

Good news: While a disc injury can be a literal pain, it also has a high chance of healing without surgery. In a study of nearly 400 individuals with disc herniations, more than 90% healed with non-surgical treatment (Chiu, 2015). ​

​Even though the first-line treatment for most disc injuries does not involve surgery, it is still important to see a healthcare provider if you are experiencing symptoms, because some rare cases require emergency care.​​

If you are experiencing back pain, get your questions answered from the comfort of home. Schedule a video visit to speak to a doctor today.

Truly yours, ​
