Conservative before invasive

  • In most cases, chiropractic care should be used as a first line of defense for back pain, since side effects are low and treatment methods are natural for your body.
  • Traditional medical approaches using drugs and surgery have their place, however should only be used in a small percentage of cases considering the nature of most low back pain.
  • Studies have shown that in most cases, long term patient outcomes are no better with invasive surgical procedures compared to conservative care with chiropractic, meaning that avoiding the high cost and associated risk of surgery is usually a good bet!

A wellness approach

  • It's important for you to realize that chiropractic is not a "cure" for low back pain.
  • In reality, your body does all of the healing; chiropractors are there to help ensure proper alignment of your spine and freedom from your nervous system, which maximizes your body's ability to heal itself.
  • As always, it's important to realize that true wellness comes from the combination of many lifestyle choices - your chiropractor will be able to help you form effective lifestyle habits to reduce future episodes of back pain.
