The latest figures show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries each year in the US. Although sometimes 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.
Dr. Stakes is here to make sure that people in Singapore have a natural, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room completely.
In this study, 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 imply that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgery.
If you live in the Singapore area, Dr. Stakes can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at 62351220 for more information or an appointment.
