Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Jane Steffen Bye is here to make sure that patients in Shoreview, MN have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.
In this report, 1,885 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having back surgery. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical procedures.
If you live in the Shoreview, MN area, Dr. Jane Steffen Bye can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (651) 483-4040 for more information or an appointment.
