Back pain? What treatment do you want? We can see from the graph below that what provider you initially choose will have a MAJOR impact on what form of treatment you receive.
(Read how Margaret avoided back surgery below!)
Many non-chiropractic health care professionals recognize the value of chiropractic back pain treatment. In the Journal of the American Medical Association article published in 2013, the authors suggested chiropractic for low-back pain. Surgery was mentioned as an option only if all else fails.
In another highly respected medical journal, manual manipulation (chiropractic) was shown to beat medication for short-term relief of chronic back pain. With prescription pain drug abuse now classified as an “epidemic” in the United States and the number of spinal fusions soaring 500 percent over the last decade, the essential services provided by doctors of chiropractic (DCs) are more critical than ever.
Doesn’t back pain simply disappear by itself?
Researchers used to believe that back pain would heal on its own. But although back pain may disappear temporarily, it is relatively likely to return. It has been demonstrated that more than 33 percent of people who experience low-back pain find that it lasts longer than 30 days. With recurrence rates as high as 94% proper management of back pain is essential.
What separates our clinic from others?
Numerous reasons, but the Cox Technique is one of the main reasons. This specialized table allows me to painlessly decompress the disc (creating a negative pressure on the disc) and give the nerve 28% more room. Decompressing the disc and relieving pressure on spinal nerves is why this technique is so effective treating difficult back conditions like sciatica, stenosis and disc herniation.
For example, “Margaret” was told by 2 different surgeons that she would need immediate surgery or suffer “permanent nerve damage” or would “be paralyzed.” Well, after treatment on the Cox table she never had surgery and is back to her normal lifestyle which includes working, exercising, walking the dog, traveling, etc… No permanent nerve damage and no paralysis.
Margaret chose a chiropractor as her first choice of provider, she didn’t know it but she only had a 1.5% chance of having surgery. With a case like hers, seeing a surgeon first and hearing the lies about “paralysis and nerve damage” might scare anyone into surgery.
CHOOSE CONSERVATIVE FIRST! CHOOSE CHIROPRACTIC!
