If you could prevent a cold from coming on before it kept you from missing work? Or prevent your son from suffering that sports injury that forces him to sit out the rest of the season? And even better, how would you like to avoid having to give up the time, energy, money and undergoing the pain and significant chances of disability involved with back surgery. Regular chiropractic care can help solve all of these problems and more.
In a recent study of 1,450 patients with similar diagnoses of degenerative disc disease, only 26% of people who have back surgery return back to work in 2 years, compared with 67% of those who don't receive surgery.
In the same study, there was a 41% increase the use of painkillers - especially opiates - compared to individuals who did not have spine surgery.
There is an actual diagnosis called "failed back surgery syndrome". This diagnosis describes a patient who did not experience improvement in pain symptoms after having surgery.
Based on various sources and research, somewhere between 40% and 75% of back surgeries fail. In other words, 40-75% of patients get no improvement after surgery. Many patients even get worse.
Back surgery is just one of the many things that regular chiropractic care can help prevent. Visit your local family chiropractor today to find out how she can help you live a happier and a healthier life.
