AMA Recommends Chiropractic Before Surgery

Although some people are still hesitant about chiropractic care, even the American Medical Association (AMA) suggests that adjustments should be tried prior to surgical treatment--the one option that should be a last resort.

Dr. Elganainy has seen many back pain patients in our Burton, MI office who have been in pain for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Dr. Elganainy has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Research Proves Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery

Recently, in one study conducted on almost 2,000 Washington State employees who suffered from a back injury while on the job, more than 42% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the individuals who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, showing that this natural approach is very effective at keeping you out of the operating room.
