Your nutritional health plays an important role in determining how well you fare during and after spine surgery.
Combat the Stress of Spine SurgerySlide 1
Whenever your body undergoes physical stress, your nutritional needs change. This is particularly true when it comes to spine surgery, or any type of operation, because incisions wreak havoc in your immune and circulatory systems, as well as in and beyond the area where the actual surgery is performed. Paying strict attention to your diet during the weeks before neck or back surgery can make a difference in how you fare during surgery and how well you heal afterwards.
