The latest figures show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Drs. Matt & Annie Reyes is here to make sure that people in State College, PA have a healthy, 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 an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you out of the operating room entirely.
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 back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings suggest that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical procedures.
