The latest numbers show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Nuesse is here to make sure that patients in Anderson Township and Newtown, Ohio have a healthy, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you out of the operating room altogether.
In this study, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings mean that chiropractic care can help you heal from back pain without surgery.
If you live in the Anderson Township and Newtown, Ohio area, Dr. Nuesse can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (513) 271-2500 for more information or an appointment.
