Présentation de l'éditeur


With back problems on the rise, particularly lower back pain, there’s a growing belief that back surgery is the ultimate quick fix. Back pain is a crippling and creeping pandemic in all populations. Worldwide, people with bulging discs, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease are hearing they are crazy to put up with pain and that spinal surgery is the answer. More alarming is the subliminal message that spine surgery is the back pain treatment of first resort; that disc replacement or laser spine surgery is easy to do and will change life for the better overnight. This is rarely the case.

This small e-book written by Sarah Key, the renowned author of the best-selling ‘Back Sufferers’ Bible’ explains how the human spine is a highly sophisticated mechanical structure and why spine surgery is not the silver bullet. The author looks at back surgery from the perspective of a back-treating therapist of many years standing, who sees the pitfalls and inherits the unsuccessful outcomes – the tragic cases of ‘failed back surgery syndrome’.

Sarah Key makes it clear that she is not a surgeon with an intimate working knowledge of the different surgical procedures, but from her position as a highly regarded practitioner with a worldwide reputation (she was made a Member of the Victorian Order by The Queen in 2003 and an Honorary Fellow of the University of Salford in 2014 for her work) she has important commentary to make in the world of backs.

For the benefit of patients lost in a wilderness and not knowing which way to turn she has spelled out the clearly defined indications for back surgery, as she sees them. She also lists the possible adverse outcomes she observes from the different surgical procedures and the broad principles of post-operative management for each. It is a must-read for anybody considering back surgery.

By providing the typical signs and symptoms of cases that probably do need to go to surgery, Sarah Key gives you a fuller picture and arms you with knowledge, so you will know whether you are beyond help through conservative therapies. Provided with vital background information, you will be able to discuss the issues with your spine surgeon and at the very least, make an informed decision - and very importantly - without a heavy heart, if you do decide to go that way.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Must Read For Everyone Treated For Spine Disease 7 juillet 2014
Par Kurt W.G. Matthies - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
As a 35-year veteran of spine disease and back pain syndromes, I understand the challenges forced upon those of us who seek relief from the chronic pain of spine disease.

Medical education fails in informing physicians about the disease state known as chronic pain, and in the options for treating spine disease. As a result of this gap in medical education many people with chronic spine disease suffer needlessly from both under treatment of pain and inappropriate surgical treatment for pain.

What typically happens when a person presents with unmanageable neck or back pain, is that their physician will begin treatment with arthritis drugs -- NSAIDs -- and refer to physical therapy. Although diagnostic films are ordered, sometimes they provide no clues that lead to a diagnosis and back pain is classified as idiopathic, meaning the origin of pain is unknown. For example, my neck pain went undiagnosed for years until MRI technology provided the resolution needed for a proper diagnosis.

The primary physician may choose to treat back pain with a muscle relaxant medication and a mild opioid pain reliever, like codeine, but there usually comes a time in when these simple treatments are unsuccessful. That's when the primary physician calls for help.

Unfortunately, most calls for help involve a referral to an orthopedic or neurosurgeon, and after a brief consult, the patient is faced with a very difficult decision -- to live with the pain or succumb to the knife.

Sometimes the outcome of back surgery is miraculous -- people wake up in the PACU recovery unit feeling immediate pain relief. I'm sure you've heard these stories. And there are times when back surgery is immediately required to prevent paralysis.

But all too often, back surgery is inappropriate. It exacerbates pain, and in the case of spinal fusion where discs are removed, starts a domino effect of one surgery after another.

This enlightening little book from Sarah Key explains and elaborates on this dilemma faced by all of us who live with back pain. When deciding for or against critical surgery, knowledge is power, and every back patient should read Sarah's book before committing to the knife.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must-read resource for anyone considering back surgery 6 juillet 2014
Par Matthew - Publié sur

An older relative of mine is considering spinal surgery, but it all feels a bit rushed and the surgeon (while undoubtedly a technical genius) hasn't done a great job of explaining what's wrong, what's planned and the risks of failure. Within a minute of downloading Be Careful I had a much better understanding because Sarah writes in a very easy-to-follow style - without sacrificing detail. I knew reading this would be a good investment in time when I saw the link to a Cochrane review on back surgery. Why had no-one pointed this out before? If you are a patient or caring for one, I would definitely read this before making your big decision.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 ... and negatives of spinal surgery but there are few better qualified to do so 21 juillet 2014

'Sarah Key may claim to have no authority to speak about the positives and negatives of spinal surgery but there are few better qualified to do so. Sarah's understanding of the living human spine is extensive and fashioned by a long history of providing effective back care. With due respect, surgeons are carpenters and as good at their craft as they are. That craft is about fixing things that are broken or seemingly so. Sarah's art and science is about snatching back's from the brink of breakage, making them work and that's what she does and does well. I look forward to reading beyond the introduction of this work for my own illumination.’

very good to have a common sense alternative point of view to the prevailing medical attitude that surgery is the cure all in relation to
spinal problems. There are no easy solutions in this area and Sarah Key has a wealth of experience to offer.
