Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have back surgery, the fact is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Marsh is here to make sure that people in West New York 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 recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Luckily, as one study has found, chiropractic care and/or osteopathic treatments may actually keep you out of the operating room altogether.
In this report, 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 ended 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 surgical treatments.
If you live in the West New York area, Dr. Marsh can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (201) 869-0830 for more information or an appointment.
