Chiropractic is Great for Back Pain Before Surgery

Although some people are still hesitant 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.

Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes has seen many back pain patients in our State College office who have been suffering for years and who are worried that they might need an operation for their back problems. Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes has had great success in helping patients get relief and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery

For example, in a study conducted on nearly 2,000 Washington State workers who suffered from a back injury while at work, more than 40% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the individuals who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, demonstrating that this non-invasive approach is extremely effective at keeping you off the operating table.
