Back surgery can sometimes be used to fix paralysis and restore motion. There are also other back problems that can only be fixed with surgery. In most cases, these sorts of conditions are degenerative types of diseases that are not caused by a person.
It is important that you do not sleep in the same position each night if you suffer from back pain. By sleeping in the same position all night, you are allowing your spine to stiffen up which can cause back pain. Be sure that you replace your mattress and pillow regularly.
