Sometimes it feels like surgery is the only option when you’ve been in pain for a long time.
Unfortunately, surgery is expensive, always requires more downtime than you expect, has longer rehab times than you assume (and WAY MORE work), and carries inherent risks like surgical complications and infection.
That being said, here are the 5 skills we believe you’ll need if avoiding surgery is your goal:
- Trust in the process
- The ability to check your ego
- Emotional resilience during setbacks
- Desire to take ownership of your health
The good news?
Surgery is rarely more effective than conservative options when it comes to musculoskeletal pain.
That being said, there’s no free lunch.
If you want to get out of pain without having surgery you’ll have to put in the work and there will be setbacks along the way.
It will require patience and you’ll have to check your own ego when you think you’re ready to move to the next level but your coach tells you to hold back for a little longer.
You’ll have to take ownership of your own health because you’re the only one who can do the work.
If you’re in pain you can get out of it, and you don’t have to go under the knife.
