Chiropractic Care Decreases Lower Back Surgery

Can chiropractic care reduce the chances of low back surgery?

Research supports chiropractic spinal manipulation is effective for treating low back pain, yet until recently there has been limited research exploring whether chiropractic care is associated with a reduction in spine surgery.

A recently published study found adults who initially received chiropractic care for low back pain caused by disc herniation or sciatica were less likely to undergo disc surgery through two years’ follow-up. If you or a family member are suffering from low back pain, chiropractic care can potentially reduce your chances of surgery, help you to restore mobility, alleviate physical pain, and positively impact your quality of life.
