back painThere are certain risk factors that come with having surgery as well as long term side affects. What’s worse you either end up seeking chiropractic care anyway. We suggest that you do it in the opposite order and seek the Chiropractic care first.

 2. Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Surgery, Too!

For those who actually have back conditions that lead to surgery, preventative care can ease the pain and discomfort as well as prevent the need for surgery.

3. Chiropractic is Better than Drugs

Several studies have shown that  chiropractic patients had better outcomes than patients who used medications for their back pain. Think about it, you back hurts you pop some pain medicine and hours later what happens….your back hurts again.

4. Chiropractic Prevents Future Cases of Back Pain

If your job requires a lot of lifting and other motions that affect your back you will find that Chiropractic care can help correct any injuries you already have and keep you lose enough to not sustain more.

5. Chiropractic Saves You Money

Think about the cost of surgery even with insurance, not think of the cost of routine chiropractic visits. A year of chiropractic care often times won’t add up to the price of back surgery.

6. Chiropractic is More Effective than Epidural Injections for Disc Herniations

A study conducted in 2013 found that back pain patients had better outcomes and lower health care costs with chiropractic than those who had epidural injections for spinal disc herniations. This basically says that the adjustments done help correct whats causing the pain instead of just numbing it.
