Chiropractic Adjustments Can Alleviate Need for Back Surgery

Charlotte, NC Avoid Back Surgery with Chiropractic Care

The latest statistics show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries each year in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back problems, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.

ChiroWerx is here to make sure that people in Charlotte, NC have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.

There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Thankfully, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.

Research Shows Chiropractic Treatment Helps Prevent Back Surgery

In this report, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having surgery for their pain. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!

These findings show that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgical treatments.

If you live in the Charlotte, NC area, ChiroWerx can probably help you with your back discomfort. Give our office a call today at (980) 201-9484 for more information or an appointment.
