How to Avoid Surgery for Back Pain

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

Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has seen many back pain patients in our Henderson, NV office who have been suffering for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Recently, in a study carried out on about 2,000 Washington State workers who suffered from a back injury while at work, 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 individuals who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, proving that this natural approach is very effective at keeping you out of the operating room.

There are options to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain. Dr. Russell and Dr. Janda has helped many patients in Henderson, NV recover. Give our office a call today at (702) 990-2225 for an appointment.
