After a fusion surgery, many lose the ability to move the spine at the place where the procedure was done. This “locking” of the spine’s segment invariably forces adjacent parts of the spine to compensate and try to keep the spine flexible. Unfortunately, this stresses and overloads those upper and lower vertebrae, forcing the intervertebral discs to break down and causing nerve compression and pain after back fusion. This was the case for Dr. Stephanie Rapke. Though she had finally recovered from a grueling fusion surgery, she later needed additional surgeries to help with the adjacent segment disease. Luckily, she found permanent relief for her new issues with the targeted Bonati Spine Procedures.
