The Failures of Back Surgery: Why Chiropractic Care May be a Better Alternative

Updated: Dec 15, 2022


As a chiropractor at Dopps Chiropractic, I often see patients who have undergone back surgeries with little to no relief of their pain. In fact, a recent study published in the journal SPINE found that up to 74% of back surgeries fail to provide adequate relief for patients.

This is a concerning statistic, and it highlights the need for alternative treatments for chronic back pain. At Dopps Chiropractic, we believe in treating the root cause of pain rather than just masking the symptoms. Through a combination of spinal manipulation, physical therapy, and lifestyle changes, we aim to provide long-term relief for our patients.

It's important to remember that not all back pain requires surgery. In many cases, conservative treatments like chiropractic care can be just as effective at relieving pain and improving function. If you are considering back surgery, be sure to talk to your chiropractor and other healthcare providers about all of your options before making a decision.

At Dopps Chiropractic, we are committed to helping our patients find lasting relief from chronic back pain. Contact us today to learn more about how we can help you on your journey to better health.
