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 surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Northside Chiropractic is here to make sure that people in Port Coquitlam 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 plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you off the surgeon's table altogether.
In this paper, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were assessed 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 subjects who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings indicate that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgical procedures.
If you live in the Port Coquitlam area, Northside Chiropractic can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (604) 941-4596 for more information or an appointment.
