Is an operation the right treatment for a slipped disc?

Customer: Is an operation the right treatment for a slipped disc?

C.C. (Colm Campbell): I would advise extreme caution. The success rate is extremely low. The latest information on low back pain, published in the August 1998 edition of Scientific American, and written by Dr Richard Dayo of the University of Washington says “the actual proportion of all back sufferers who are surgical candidates is only about 2 %”.

Customer: So what can you do?

C.C.: I eliminate the main cause of back pain.

Customer: What’s that?

C.C.: Bad posture.
