Every 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 prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Sweeney Chiropractic is here to make sure that people in Nashville have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table 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 back surgery. For subjects who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgery.
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.
