Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda is here to make sure that patients in Henderson, NV have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Fortunately, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you out of the operating room altogether.
In this study, 1,885 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having surgery for their pain. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical procedures.
