Chiropractic Before Surgery, Says AMA

Nashville natural back pain treatment

Although some people are still hesitant about chiropractic, even the American Medical Association (AMA) suggests that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.

Sweeney Chiropractic has seen many back pain patients in our Nashville office who have been suffering for years and who are worried that they might need an operation for their back pain. Sweeney Chiropractic has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Research Supports Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery

For example, in one study conducted on about 2,000 Washington State workers who suffered from a back injury while on the job, more than 42% 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 care, proving that this non-invasive approach is very effective at keeping you off the operating table.
