The latest statistics show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Robert Linton is here to make sure that patients in Mt Sterling have a natural, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you off the surgeon's table entirely.
In this report, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having back surgery. 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 surgery.
If you live in the Mt Sterling area, Dr. Robert Linton can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (859) 499-1009 for more information or an appointment.
