Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Sweeney Chiropractic is here to make sure that patients in Nashville 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 procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.
In this report, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought care 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 indicate that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgical treatments.
If you live in the Nashville area, Sweeney Chiropractic can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (615) 331-7040 for more information or an appointment.
