Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, 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 people in Henderson, NV have a healthy, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room completely.
In this study, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended 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 surgical treatments.
