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 fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Oregon Medical Centers is here to make sure that people in Aloha, Beaverton have a natural, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table entirely.
In this report, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought care 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 procedures.
