Although some people are still skeptical about chiropractic treatment, even the American Medical Association (AMA) suggests that adjustments should be tried prior to surgical treatment - the one option that should be a last resort.
Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has seen many back pain patients in our Harrisburg office who have been suffering for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back issues. Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.
Recently, in a study carried out on almost 2,000 Washington State employees who suffered from a back injury while on the job, 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 people who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, showing that this non-invasive approach is extremely effective at keeping you out of the operating room.
There are options to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic Adjustments is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain. Blake Chiropractic & Rehabilitation has helped many patients in Harrisburg recover. Give our office a call today at (717) 657-2561 for an appointment.
