In brief: Usually not

Although I have had some patients with great results who are very comfortable once healed from surgery, in many cases the pain continues.
Sometime it improves, sometimes not. An experienced spine surgeon can review the likelihood of your possible outcomes. For backs, prevention and posture is the best thing you can do. Keep excellent core strength and posture and avoid injury and strain!
