AMA Recommends Chiropractic Before Surgery
Although some people are still hesitant about chiropractic, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgical treatment--the one option that should be a last resort.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery
Recently, in a study conducted on almost 2,000 Washington State employees who suffered from a back injury while on the job, 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, showing that this non-invasive approach is extremely effective at keeping you out of the operating room.
