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 prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Groneck is here to make sure that patients in Humble have a natural, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room completely.
In this paper, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having surgery for their pain. For patients who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings mean that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgical procedures.
If you live in the Humble area, Dr. Groneck can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (281) 540-7201 for more information or an appointment.
