  1. Choose Chiropractic Before Surgery – The AMA recommends seeking chiropractic care over more invasive surgical procedures. By choosing a chiropractic care plan, you’ll allow your body to heal itself naturally without the risks that can be involved in surgical intervention. Since doctors of chiropractic are experts on the neuromuskuloskeletal system, they can perform adjustments, which help re-align the spine and relieve pain. This method allows for greater range of motion than most surgical options, and since it’s non-invasive, complications such as scar tissue buildup, which can increase pain, are not concerns. Surgery should only be considered when all other courses of action have been exhausted.
  2. Significantly Reduce the Likelihood of Surgery – According to a study published in the journal Spine43 percent of injured workers with back pain who visited a medical doctor for treatment underwent surgery, while only 1.5 percent of patients who visited doctors of chiropractic had to resort to potentially harmful medications and surgeries. This means that choosing a natural care plan of chiropractic means you’re 28 times less likely to require surgery for back pain.
  3. More Effective than Harmful Drugs – Countless studies have shown that choosing chiropractic care is much more beneficial than resorting to harmful drugs. Drugs mask the symptoms of back pain, while chiropractic actively works to address the root source. Not only can many of the drug therapies cause dangerous addiction, they can also damage the stomach and hinder your ability to function properly. People who’ve chosen chiropractic care are much more likely to resume normal activities and be pain free without the use of drugs.
