Talk about poor odds.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Americans have a 80 percent chance of experiencing backpain in their lifetimes.

Even worse, if you experience severe pain and are told that drugs or surgery are your only options, it can be a frightening situation. The latter can lead to addiction. As for the second…well, many believe that this headline is from a publication focusing on natural health. “Back Surgery: Too Many, Too Costly, and Too Ineffective.”

Experts are recommending a third option before any patient is forced to choose between the two.

This option is available? Chiropractic care.

“Medical care certainly has not solved the everyday symptom of low back pain, and even may be reinforcing and exacerbating the problem,”Gordon Waddell MD is a well-known spine researcher and orthopedist.

Numerous studies have proven that chiropractic care is effective in relieving pain and improving spinal health.

* Better outcomes

* Lower costs

* A much higher degree of patient satisfaction, as witnessed by the 94.3 percent positive rating reported by the military health program TRICARE among participating active and retired Army personnel.

“It’s gratifying that patients and practitioners are seeing the wisdom of considering chiropractic first, medicine second, and surgery last,”Gerard Clum, DC, of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (non-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress) says.
