Many people might get a diagnosis from a doctor and that doctor might recommend surgery. Before immediately deciding to go the surgery route, it is always good practice to see a physiatrist and get a second opinion. There are many times surgery can be avoided when dealing with conditions that may limit activity and/or cause pain.
