Research Supports Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery

Recently, in one study carried out on about 2,000 Washington State workers who suffered from a back injury while on the job, more than 42% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the people who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, proving that this natural approach is extremely effective at keeping you off the operating table.
