Not wanting to have back surgery is natural. Your spine is with you on that!

And seeing a chiropractor like your very own Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic FIRST for back pain relief reduces the odds of back surgery! Spine journal says so!

The May 2013 issue of the top-rated spine journal in medicine, Spine, publishes the results of a study of back surgery patients to get some statistics. (1) These are most interesting:

  • only 1.5% of those who saw a CHIROPRACTOR FIRST had surgery.
  • 42.7% of those who saw a SURGEON FIRST had surgery.

  • younger than 35 years,
  • females,
  • Hispanics, and
  • those whose first provider was a chiropractor.

Approximately 42.7% of workers who first saw a surgeon first for their back pain had surgery in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first. So see your Augusta chiropractor at Lombardy Chiropractic Clinic first!
