The latest numbers show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Gadsden Family Chiropractic is here to make sure that patients in Gadsden, AL have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many patients recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room altogether.
In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings suggest that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgery.
