Although some people are still skeptical about chiropractic, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.
Dr. James Ellis & Dr. Lyndsay Martin has seen many back pain patients in our Woburn & Chelmsford, MA office who have been in pain for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Dr. James Ellis & Dr. Lyndsay Martin has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.
Recently, in a study conducted on almost 2,000 Washington State workers who suffered from a back injury while at work, more than 42% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the people who first sought treatment with chiropractic care, proving that this non-invasive approach is extremely effective at keeping you off the operating table.
There are alternatives to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain. Dr. James Ellis & Dr. Lyndsay Martin has helped many patients in Woburn & Chelmsford, MA recover. Give our office a call today at (781) 460-0939 for an appointment.
