The latest figures show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries each year in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center is here to make sure that people in Parma, Middleburg Heights have a natural, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room completely.
In this study, 1,885 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having back surgery. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgical treatments.
If you live in the Parma, Middleburg Heights area, Baker Chiropractic Wellness Center can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (440) 888-6979 for more information or an appointment.
