Although some people are still uncertain about chiropractic care, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.
Dr. Green has seen many back pain patients in our Estero, Bonita Springs office who have been hurting for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Dr. Green has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.
Recently, in one study conducted on about 2,000 Washington State workers 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, proving that this non-invasive approach is extremely effective at keeping you out of the operating room.
There are alternatives to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain. Dr. Green has helped many patients in Estero, Bonita Springs recover. Give our office a call today at (239) 495-1166 for an appointment.
