CLA Update: Why You Should Consider Chiropractic Before Surgery

April 9, 2014

Back pain among Americans is second only to the common cold when it comes to doctor visits. Back pain can be very debilitating and interfere with your daily life, your ability to earn income and can even increase stress for you and your family. Many people resort to surgery hoping to relieve their back pain and return to some semblance of normalcy. However, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has released new guidelines for those who suffer from this condition.


In an effort to educate the public, JAMA has recommended chiropractic care and physical therapy to treat back pain rather than resorting to surgery. Only once these non-invasive methods have been exhausted should patients resort to more aggressive care such as surgery.

According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), chiropractic should be the first source of analysis and care when you’re suffering from back pain. Doctors of chiropractic are experts when it comes to the spine, muscles and connecting tissues that make up the musculoskeletal system. Their intense education and training is all centered around this. Since chiropractic care is a non-invasive and holistic method of resolving back pain causes, it won’t cause harmful side effects or limit your natural movement as surgery can often do.

The effectiveness of chiropractic in caring for back pain, as well as the lower cost for care plans, make this a much more economical solution for those who are suffering from back pain. There are no expensive drugs to purchase and there are no costly surgical treatments or hospital stays involved in this form of care. Most patients begin to feel relief after their chiropractic doctor has performed their first adjustments.

The bottom line in chiropractic care — if you’re alive and have subluxations, you’re better off alive without nerve interference. Chiropractic Lifecare of America believes everyone should have access to affordable chiropractic care.
