The latest statistics show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries each year in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the reality is that if you can avoid 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 problems. We've helped many patients recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you out of the operating room completely.
In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment 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 heal from back pain without surgical procedures.
If you live in the Prescott area, Weary Chiropractic Clinic can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (928) 778-2227 for more information or an appointment.
