This past year you have spent on your pain treatment:
Get surgery now. Getting surgery now is the smartest financial move. Over the last two years, the average North American Spine patient spent around $2,000 out-of-pocket for treatment. You’ve spent that much or more this year to manage your back pain than you could to fix it.
Get surgery soon. Over the last two years, the average North American Spine patient spent around $2,000 out-of-pocket for treatment. At your current rate, you will spend that much or more within the next two years. The sooner you get treatment, the sooner it will pay for itself.
Keep an eye on your spending. Currently, you are managing your pain efficiently from a financial perspective but over time, your expenses could add up. Surgery should be strongly considered if you start missing more work or spending more on treatment medication.
Great job! You are spending very little on your back pain. Keep it up!

My first assessment was Spondylosis, cervical, Lumbar Spondylosis and Spondylolisthesis at L5-S1 level. Today, I am feeling 100% better I can bowl, golf and even enjoy camping.

I have had ZERO pain since the procedure for my spinal stenosis. It feels like a new back – very solid and totally pain-free.
