AMA Recommends Chiropractic Before Surgery

AMA Recommends Chiropractic Before Surgery

Although some people are still skeptical about chiropractic, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery–the one option that should be a last resort.

Spinal Balance Health Center has seen many back pain patients in our Omaha office who have been hurting for years and who are worried that they might need an operation for their back pain. Spinal Balance Health Center has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Research Shows 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 at work, more than 40% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the people who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, demonstrating that this non-invasive approach is very effective at keeping you off the operating table.
