Although some people are still uncertain about chiropractic care, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.
Gadsden Family Chiropractic has seen many back pain patients in our Gadsden, AL office who have been suffering for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Gadsden Family Chiropractic has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky surgery, and the science backs up our experience.
Recently, in one study conducted on about 2,000 Washington State employees who suffered from a back injury while at work, more than 42% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the people who first sought treatment with chiropractic, showing that this natural approach is extremely effective at keeping you out of the operating room.
There are options to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain.
