January 28, 2016 —The second most common reason patients seek medical care is back pain, while lower back pain stands as the leading cause of worldwide disability. At any given time, over 31 million Americans are afflicted by some degree of back pain, resulting in billions of dollars’ worth of treatment; mostly without any lasting results.
It is a fact that a large number of back surgeries may not be necessary, meaning patients are going under the knife where there may be other less invasive options available. Furthermore, back surgery does not always guarantee success, as about half of back surgery patients continue to have back pain long after their procedures.
Deed Harrison, DC and Chiropractic BioPhysic (CBP) president and clinical director at the Ideal Spine Health Center in Eagle, Idaho agrees that many patients are not being given the right options to properly manage back pain.
“When a large number of surgeries are deemed unnecessary, it goes to show that the medical profession is failing in two critical areas: diagnosis and treatment. Back surgery must be reserved as the very last option to combat back pain,” said Harrison. “Instead of back surgery, I urge patients to seek a second opinion from a highly trained and certified CBP chiropractor so that they may truly understand the cause of their back pain and get educated on just how successful Chiropractic BioPhysics is in improving back pain and spinal health through corrective spinal care.”
While regular chiropractic care may help alleviate pain temporarily, CBP is the only treatment plan that concentrates on long-term success based on highly calculated and customized spinal rehabilitation and postural correction care.
Once spinal and postural misalignments are corrected, back pain will subside significantly and patients will be able to go about living a pain-free or dramatically improved quality of life. These statements are evidenced by three randomized clinical trials, two non-randomized trials, and numerous case reports in the scientific literature.
