FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Back pain accounts for approximately 13.4 million physician office visits and 3.7 million emergency room visits annually in the United States. To eliminate or reduce pain and restore quality of life, patients with acute, debilitating pain may require spinal fusion. However, while spinal fusion has remained the gold standard for the treatment of spinal degenerative disorders, it can cause restriction of motion and degeneration of adjacent spinal segments through stress which can further delay recovery and in some cases, even lead to unwanted additional back surgery. Meanwhile, spinal non-fusion technology is experiencing rapid advances, with advanced technologies leading to the introduction of new devices, such as artificial disc replacement (ADR), dynamic stabilization and Interspinous Process Decompression (IPD) devices.
Motion-preservation techniques in spinal non-fusion procedures are predicted to be the next big thing in spinal surgery, and have seen enhanced adoption rates over the last few years. Following developments in the understanding of spinal physiology, anatomy and spinal biomechanics, innovative techniques can now maintain spinal mobility while treating spinal degeneration, and a number of manufacturers have developed motion-preserving devices to exploit this growing trend.
