Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes 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. Neil Scharf is here to make sure that patients in Parkland, FL have a natural, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you out of the operating room completely.
In this paper, 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 wound up having back surgery. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical treatments.
