As you grow older, the spine is one of the most commonly affected areas of the body. A condition that requires spine or disc surgery in the future may have begun from a nagging back pain as a result of poor posture, lack of exercise or long working hours. Most of these conditions can be treated with medication and exercises. Unfortunately, sometimes these aches and pains grow into conditions that require special care or spine disc surgery. Spinal cord injury requires surgical management, and this happens when medication and exercise fails to bring improvement.
