The facts are that four out of five adults experience back pain at some point during their lives and low back problems are the most frequent cause of disability in people under the age of 45 years of age. However, the unfortunate truth also is that while there are an estimated half million surgical procedures done each year on the back, most are either not needed or are unsuccessful in overcoming the health problem.
According to guidelines issued by the Agency for Healthcare Research & Quality, a federal agency, only two percent of the people require surgery for back pain in the acute stage.
That’s why health authorities recommend that you explore “every option” before considering surgery. In this respect, Chiropractic Care, which incorporates spinal manipulations, is recognized as a highly effective method for treating back problems, without harmful drugs or potentially dangerous surgery.
It’s smart to be conservative when it comes to your health. I’d be glad to answer any questions you may have regarding Chiropractic as an alternative to surgery. If you would like a second opinion please call me.
