The established procedures of Orthopaedic Medicine provide highly effective non-surgical treatment options for curing a whole range of spinal disorders, according to the well-renowned spinal specialist Mr MB Luklinski - a world authority on spinal care with more than 36 years of practice and founder of the Luklinski Clinic in London.

The efficiacy of orthopaedic medicine cures 99% of cases, whereas surgical treatment may help in less than 1% of cases. Surgery itself has now become a major cause of chronic pain and life-long disability in thousands of spinal cases - which is why surgery should be avoided at all costs unless you have broken your back.

Mechanical compression of one or more of the spinal nerves or irritation of a nerve root by a bulging disc is a common cause of sciatica, back pain, or numbness in a limb. Using the safe and gentle procedure of mobilisation (not manipulation), the bulging disc causing the symptoms is coaxed back to its natural position to decompress the affected nerve, or to alleviate any nerve root irritation. Normalisation of the disc and decompression of the spinal nerve is achieved without surgery using standard procedures of Orthopaedic Medicine.

The surgical approach to treatment however is to remove part or all of a bulging disc to relieve pressure on a spinal nerve. (Note that a 'bulging disc' need only bulge a fraction of a millimetre to cause impingement of a nerve). Surgery leaves the patient with a painful spine incapable of any natural movement, and the patient soon experiences constant pain and a reduced quality of life due to the consequences of scar tissue and spinal instability. The patient is not told this prior to surgery, and following surgery the patient is left to suffer and does not know how to alleviate the pain. The hospital has made its money and is only interested in performing operations.

If this summary seems unfairly critical of spinal surgery, please read our FAQ below and click on the link to the spine forum. Get the plain truth from those who have already been led into having costly and useless spinal surgery. All the common spinal conditions such as bulging discs, sciatica, scoliosis, degenerative disc disease, and spinal stenosis which surgery tries to cure can be effectively treated non-surgically. The National Health Service should therefore aim towards training more physical therapy practitoners instead of focusing on more 'fashionable' surgical procedures.

One of the most common causes of spine and brain damage is through playing contact sports without using the proper protection. Playing rugby, football, hockey, cricket, taking part in athletics and a host of other sports, can leave you with serious injuries if you suffer a nasty accident. You should always minimise the chances of such injuries by making sure you protect yourself and wear the proper sporting equipment to support your limbs.

BBSF strongly caution our patients and visitors to this website not to agree to surgical procedures such as laminectomy, discectomy, spinal fusion, or IDET, or IDD therapy whether they are performed privately, or on the NHS, because such procedures are neither necessary nor effective as a form of treatment and invariably cause much more harm than the original condition.

We hope to show you via this web site that there is a non-surgical solution to almost every kind of spinal disorder, and that restoring your spine to a normal condition is not so difficult as it first appears. If your medical practitioner confirms that your condition is related to the spine and not to some other cause, such as a duodenal ulcer which can mimic back pain, then please contact us to arrange an appointment for an examination and treatment.
