Does Back Pain Affect Your Sex Life?
If you suffer from a spine condition, you know all too well that it can keep you from enjoying your favorite activities. But what may be even more frustrating is if your back pain is affecting your marriage or relationship. One of the greatest joys in life is being intimate with your husband or wife, but chronic back pain may keep you from this. And if your significant other feels slighted or neglected because of your inability to have sex, this can add even more stress to your worsening condition.
The good news is that Laser Spine Institute offers an endoscopic alternative to open back or neck surgery that can relieve your chronic pain and consequently may help you regain that lost intimacy with your partner in less than a week after surgery. If you have a spine condition such as herniated disc, spinal stenosis, degenerative disc disease or sciatica, among others, this minimally invasive surgical approach might be the answer you are looking for. While we understand that the intimate moments you share with your spouse cannot be replaced, below are some tips for ways you can show your significant other how much he or she means to you:
- Place sticky notes on your bedroom mirror that compliment his or her appearance
- Be honest with your loved one and tell them how much you want to experience intimacy again
- Cook your spouse a homemade dinner and set the table with candles and flowers
- Give your husband or wife a massage before bed
- Hold your spouse’s hand while you are watching television together
Don’t let chronic pain take away the intimacy you once shared with your husband or wife. It is possible to find relief from back pain and enjoy sex again. Endoscopic spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute is the more effective alternative to open back or neck surgery that can help you put back pain behind you for good.
