High Risk Surgery


Before Surgery



Consider this  ...

According to a Johns Hopkins' 2002 white paper on low back pain, fewer than 5% of people with back pain are good candidates for surgery.  If 95% of the candidates are not good prospects, what are your odds? A recent article in the medical journal Spine stated that as much as 70% of those who underwent back surgery still suffered from back pain for up to 17 years after the surgery.The good news is that there are options. Ninety percent of back pain can be resolved without surgery if both doctors and patients are willing to try other treatments that basically help the back to heal itself.  says Dr. Richard Deyo, University of Washington, in an interview with CONSUMER HEALTH INTERACTIVE Magazine.

Elective surgery is not an emergency and fortunately gives you the opportunity to conduct your own research before you sign on the dotted line. If you suffer from back pain, neck pain, knee pain or pain in your feet, you need to know that the failure rate for these proceedures is very high. Before you take the radical and irreversible step of surgery, you are well advised to study other options for relieving your pain.






Back pain = Muscle Pain

The reason over 90% of back pain can be solved without surgery is simple. Most back pain is muscle pain. Most muscle pain is caused by muscle over-use. Poor posture forces the back muscles to work harder all day - even in situations where they should be relatively relaxed. 

Dr. Bernard Filner, MD, says, A significant number of people, including many of my patients, contemplate surgery because they hurt so badly - but most of the time, by using the Posture Control Insoles along with other non-invasive treatment, we can alleviate the pain and avoid surgery. 

"Posture Control Insoles do what surgery and custom orthotics cannot do - provide the proper sensory feedback from your feet to your brain. Your feet play an integral role in maintaining a pain free posture, including proper curvature of the spine. Modest changes in your posture provide the potential for complete relief of low-back pain. If you are in pain, even if you have tried custom orthotics without success, please, try Posture Control Insoles before you try surgery," said Dr. Filner.

When you are on your knees, suffering with back pain, changing posture may seem far fetched.  But a variety of therapists can get you back to functional so you can start the ground up process of correcting your posture.  Of course an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, so starting to care for your posture today can save you unimaginable pain, time and money in the future.

Foot pain vs. Disability

"When your feet hurt, you whole body hurts," says Dr. Carl Jelstrup from Bellevue, WA. "It is not that your body suffers from empathy pain. Your body is actually suffering from the effects of poor foot mechanics - and back pain is part of that equation" 
"When the pain level becomes disabling, people become desperate for relief. Foot surgery may appear to be a high tech way out of pain. But we should respect the natural and miraculously complex design of our feet."

"When you consider that surgery involves cutting and splicing tiny bones, releasing and attaching ligaments and tendons, adding screws, pins and positional splints all in an environment that heals very slowly it becomes easier to understand how exceedingly small the surgical margin between success and failure is. Failure will severely impact your entire body. My experience and wisdom definitively suggest you try a product like PostureControl Insoles first."

Big Business


Back surgery is a very profitable American business.  Estimates are that somewhere between 350,000 to a half million Americans undergo surgery for back pain every year, and according to the Agency for Healthcare Research Quality, Americans spend more than $11 billion each year on operations to relieve back pain. 

Foot surgery is most often performed on an outpatient basis  and since it is typically not a life threatening procedure, less statistical information  is available.  When seeing a surgeon remember that surgery is their bread and butter, so don't expect to be educated on more conservative non-surgical approaches.  Always get a second opinion, and explore natural and less radical alternatives first. 



Before you submit to surgery, try the route of altering and improving your foot mechanics and posture. Posture Control Insoles improve both your foot mechanics and your dynamic posture.

You may have tried orthotics and arch supports before, but Posture Control Insoles are different.  It will be a different experience because Posture Control Insoles alter your mechanics and posture by naturally stimulating your muscles. 

Posture Control Insoles are guaranteed to be different. You should expect real meaningful results.  We want to satisfy your real expectations whether it is reducing pain, improving posture or enhancing athletic performance.   That is the expectation we back with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. We know that your posture may take a few weeks to adjust to your new foundation, and that pain does not resolve instantly and may need the aid of therapy.  Even though we expect you to feel the difference in less than a week, we want you to have three months (90 days) to make sure you like them.
