Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back discomfort, the reality is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes is here to make sure that people in State College have a natural, non-surgical option for back issues. We've helped many people get relief from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table altogether.
In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having surgery for their pain. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings indicate that chiropractic care can help you heal from back discomfort without surgical procedures.
