Chiropractic is Great for Back Issues Before Surgery

Although some people are still hesitant about chiropractic adjustments, 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.

Dr. Alpert has seen many back pain patients in our Jonesboro office who have been hurting for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back problems. Dr. Alpert has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Research Supports Chiropractic Therapy Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery

For example, in one study carried out on almost 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, showing that this non-invasive approach is very effective at keeping you off the operating table.
