Neck mobility varies after fusion surgery, but some restriction is common. Consult your surgeon for specific expectations.
Sacroiliac joint fusion involves stabilizing the joint surgically, reducing pain and discomfort.
Interbody cages are used in spine fusion to maintain disc height and promote bone growth between vertebrae, ensuring stability.
Lumbar spinal fusion stops the motion at a painful vertebral segment in the low back. The surgery helps improve spinal stability, correct anatomical deformities, and relieve nerve compression.
Multilevel fusion carries risks like infection, nerve damage, and fusion failure, but benefits include pain relief and improved stability.
Multilevel spinal fusion addresses low back pain by stabilizing multiple vertebrae, aiding fusion and enhancing spinal alignment.
Neck mobility may be more restricted following multilevel cervical fusion.
Anticipate limited neck mobility after single-level cervical fusion; consult your surgeon for personalized insights.
Manage ACDF pain at home with medication, ice, rest, and neck support for a smoother recovery.
