Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Gugerli is here to make sure that patients in Cary have a healthy, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you off the surgeon's table entirely.
In this report, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having surgery for their pain. For subjects who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings suggest that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical procedures.
