The latest figures show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries annually in the US. Although sometimes 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.

There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you off the surgeon's table completely.
In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having surgery for their pain. For those 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.
