Neck pain AFTER cervical fusion.

Cervical fusion.  C5 and C6 have been fused together.  The surgeon packs bone, in this case, between the two vertebrae then attaches a titanium plate and screws into the bone to hold it in place until the joint fuses.  This man had that surgery done about 5 years ago.  Permanent fix.  Not so fast!  Permanent maybe, for that joint, but what about the joints above and below the fusion.  They soon become problematic and now what do you do?  I can help, but I do have less to work with.  While surgery is the last option for these kinds of problems, it is NOT the worst way to treat them.  Narcotics have been proven to be the worst possible way of treating spinal problems.
