Chiropractic Can Alleviate Need for Back Surgery

North County St. Louis, MO Back Pain Treatment without SurgeryThe latest numbers show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although sometimes 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.

Dr. Holland is here to make sure that people in North County St. Louis, MO have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.

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

Research Supports Chiropractic Treatment Helps Avoid Back Surgery

In this study, 1,885 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having back surgery. For subjects 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 surgery.
