Chiropractic Can Help Prevent Surgery for Back Pain

Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.

Kauffman Chiropractic is here to make sure that people in Loveland have a natural, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.

There are plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room altogether.

In this study, 1,885 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having surgery for their pain. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!

These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgery.

If you live in the Loveland area, Kauffman Chiropractic can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (513) 444-4529 for more information or an appointment.
