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