Every year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Lipsitz is here to make sure that patients in Waldorf, MD have a healthy, non-surgical option for back pain. We've helped many people heal 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 an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you off the surgeon's table entirely.
In this study, 1,885 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound 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 surgical procedures.
If you live in the Waldorf, MD area, Dr. Lipsitz can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (301) 645-8898 for more information or an appointment.
