Holtsville Avoid Back Surgery with Chiropractic Adjustments

Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes 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.

Dr. Cohen is here to make sure that people in Holtsville have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people get relief from back pain without the need for surgery.

There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Thankfully, as one medical study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.

Research Supports Chiropractic Care Helps Prevent Back Surgery

In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!

These findings mean that chiropractic care can help you heal from back discomfort without surgical procedures.
