Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the reality is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Elganainy is here to make sure that patients in Burton, MI 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 treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Fortunately, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you out of the operating room altogether.
Research Shows Chiropractic Care Helps Avoid Back Surgery
In this paper, 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 back surgery. For those 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 treatments.
