What Is Motion Preservation?

Motion preservation in orthopedic surgery refers to the preservation of natural motion and function of the spine while treating spine-related conditions. This approach has gained popularity in recent years, as it offers several benefits over traditional methods that involve fusion.

Benefits of Motion Preservation

By opting for motion preservation techniques, Central Texas Spine Institute aims to provide patients with shorter recovery times, improved mobility, and a reduction in the risk of complications associated with fusion surgeries. These techniques focus on preserving the natural movement of the spine, allowing patients to maintain their normal range of motion.


Types of Motion Preservation Techniques

Artificial Disc Replacement

One commonly used motion preservation technique is artificial disc replacement. This spine procedure involves removing the damaged or degenerated disc in the spine and replacing it with an artificial disc that mimics the natural structure and function of the disc. Disc replacement allows patients to retain the flexibility and motion of the spine, resulting in a better quality of life post-surgery.

Dynamic Stabilization

Another motion preservation technique utilized by Central Texas Spine Institute is dynamic stabilization. This technique involves the implantation of specialized devices, such as flexible rods or screws, to stabilize the spine while preserving its natural motion. Dynamic stabilization offers several advantages over fusion, including reduced stress on adjacent segments of the spine and a lower risk of degeneration in those segments.


Conservative Spine Treatments

Central Texas Spine Institute also employs minimally invasive techniques to further enhance motion preservation in orthopedic surgery. Minimally invasive spine procedures involve smaller incisions, which result in less tissue damage, reduced scarring, and faster recovery times. These techniques, combined with motion preservation principles, provide patients with a less invasive and more efficient surgical experience.


Comprehensive Health Solutions

In addition to surgical interventions, Central Texas Spine Institute emphasizes the importance of non-surgical approaches to motion preservation. Our Austin spine clinic often recommends top-rated comprehensive rehabilitation programs that focus on strengthening the core muscles, improving posture, and promoting spinal health. These programs help patients optimize their overall spinal function and reduce the likelihood of future spine-related issues.

Patient Education

Central Texas Spine Institute understands the importance of patient education and provides resources to help patients make informed decisions about their spine treatment options. Our spine clinic's website contains a wealth of information on motion preservation, including detailed explanations of surgical techniques, frequently asked questions, and patient testimonials.
