The latest statistics show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the reality is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Spiropoulos is here to make sure that patients in Moon Township 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 complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.
In this report, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings suggest that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgery.
