The latest numbers show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Neil Stakes is here to make sure that people in Singapore have a natural, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people recover 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 a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.
In this report, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having back surgery. For subjects who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings mean that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical procedures.
