Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it’s necessary to have back surgery, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you’re often better off.
Dr. Kaden is here to make sure that people in Redondo Beach have a healthy, non-surgical option for back problems. We’ve helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you off the surgeon’s table entirely.
Research Shows Chiropractic Care Helps Avoid Back Surgery
In this report, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment 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 surgery.
If you live in the Redondo Beach area, Dr. Kaden can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (310) 251-0862 for more information or an appointment.
