How can your back get better since when you have back fusion?

Fusion: Fusion for the back can be helpful in certain situations. A thorough evaluation, including review of treatments attempted and formal imaging studies including x-ray and MRI or ct scans are needed. Fusion is typically offered in the setting of slipped vertebrae (spondylolisthesis) or deformity such as scoliosis. Fusion is also indicated in certain fractures or tumors.
