Chiropractic, back surgery and disc problems
Back surgery is only necessary in a small number of cases. These usual involve patients with fractured vertebrae or kyphosis, or when degenerative disc disease has progressed so far that the spinal nerves are being compressed causing constant and server pain. Spinal surgery should only be considered after more natural and non-invasive methods have been given a fair chance. Chiropractic care is not only recommended for prevention of back surgery for those that have chronic pain and disc injuries, it is also recommended for the prevention of these things from happening in the first place.
For those who have had surgery, be rest assured, chiropractic after surgery is very safe. Our qualified Chiropractors are experienced healthcare professionals.
