The latest statistics show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries each year in the US. Although in some cases 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. Steve Eustice is here to make sure that patients in Denton, TX have a natural, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you out of the operating room entirely.
In this report, 1,885 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 surgery for their pain. 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 surgical treatments.
