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.

Research Proves Chiropractic Treatment Helps Avoid Back Surgery

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.
