The Back Story

May 3, 2021

We kick off Season 2 of The Back Story with a look at neck pain and how it has become more prevalent as we are working more from home. Our guest is Dr. Dan Riew, Director of Cervical Spine Surgery and Co-Director of Spine Surgery at New York Presbyterian Och Spine Hospital.

We cover: (6:56) what 'tech neck' is and how our devices could be hurting us, (12:41) when it comes to disk degeneration, what's normal aging and what's not?, (19:04) an overview of artificial disk replacement, as well as (22:34) ACDF (Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion) and how it compares to other procedures, and (27:21) preparations you can take before artificial disk replacement.
