Back surgery medication or chiropractic care

If you’ve been told back or neck surgery is a good option for you, please have a chiropractic evaluation first. Ongoing Chiropractic care has been shown to help reduce the need for costly, risky, and ineffective back and neck surgeries.

This is the situation each year for 2.7 million Americans who find themselves in a doctor’s office, being told that procedures such as spinal fusion, decompression, or laminectomy are their only choices. Keep in mind, these procedures can range between $20,000–$120,000, according to Reuters and Healthcare Bluebook. What’s more, spinal surgery is no guarantee you’ll be back to your old self again. Plus, there are possible risks involved: nerve damage, reaction to anesthesia and heart, lung, or bleeding issues.

Get Proven Results! Surgery can fail. Often a second one is needed. Failed Back Surgery Syndrome (FBSS) is unfortunately a common reality. It’s also tempting to reach for a pill. However, there is no drug that can correct the underlying structural cause of your pain. Yet, that’s exactly what some doctors recommend! By keeping your joints moving properly, our comprehensive spinal care helps reduce inflammation, stiffness, and pain...naturally. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reports that 116 million Americans live with some form of severe or recurring pain, and most use medication to manage it. Painkillers come with potentially serious side effects, especially with long-term use. Why take the risks when you don’t have to! Use What You Already Have! Chiropractic adjustments actually help your body release its own natural pain-relieving chemicals!

We aim to address the root cause of your discomfort. We gently restore your spine’s alignment, removing pressure from inflamed nerves and muscles—common causes of musculoskeletal pain! You’ve heard the news. Our country is in an opioid crisis. The drugs people turn to are not helping them get better—they’re making them dependent!

Now, we realize that for some people the addition of medication to minimize spinal pain is the best approach, but that should almost always be combined with efforts to correct the structural issues with chiropractic care. Also, there are situations where surgery really is the only answer. In this case it is likely that chiropractic care will be beneficial within 6 months to 2 years after the surgery to increase mobility and improve healing.

Please call us if you are interested in natural care to relieve and heal back and neck conditions without the use of drugs or surgery.
