Chiropractic Before Surgery, Says AMA
Although some people are still hesitant about chiropractic care, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.
Dr. Nowak has seen many back pain patients in our South Buffalo office who have been in pain for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Dr. Nowak has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.
Research Supports Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery
Recently, in one study conducted on almost 2,000 Washington State workers who suffered from a back injury while on the job, 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 patients who first sought treatment with chiropractic, proving that this non-invasive approach is very effective at keeping you off the operating table.
