A review, by scientists at the Department of Orthopaedics at the Geisel School of Medicine, clearly suggests that the first doctor you choose to see will have a profound effect on whether you end up having spinal surgery.
Just look at these stats:
42.7% of workers who first saw a surgeon ended in surgery, as opposed to only
1.5% of those who (first) saw a chiropractor.
The authors conclude: “There was a very strong association between surgery and first provider seen for the injury, even after adjustment for other important variables.”
There is no better feeling than knowing we have helped someone avoid surgery and all the possible complications. We have seen this in the office in cases of scoliosis, back pain, knee pain, shoulder pain (rotator cuff), and neck pain.
We are happy to give our opinion on ways we can help residents of New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, Oak Hill, and surrounding areas.
