Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have back surgery, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Active Spinal Care is here to make sure that people in Reisterstown have a natural, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people 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 additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.
In this report, 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 back surgery. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings suggest that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical treatments.
If you live in the Reisterstown area, Active Spinal Care can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (410) 833-8877 for more information or an appointment.
