Facts About Spine Treatments

Milwaukee Chiropractor Spine Treatment FactsBack pain is second only to upper-respiratory infections as most common medical reason for visits to the doctor’s office. In fact, at some point 4 out of every 5 Americans will suffer from low back pain!

The good news is that over 95% of all low back pain cases are caused by biomechanical dysfunction that can be treated effectively with chiropractic care. Fewer than 5% have more insidious explanations. A multidisciplinary panel of experts appointed by the US Agency for Health Care Policy and Research recently reviewed nearly 4,000 studies on treatment for cases of acute low back pain. The panel reported that decompression surgery, bed rest, corticosteroids, and prescription pain-killers, anti-inflammatories and muscle relaxers were all less desirable treatment options than chiropractic adjustments, which they noted can indeed be beneficial for patients with acute low back problems.

Doesn’t preventative chiropractic care make more sense? Gentle, precise chiropractic care by Dr. Linsay Way at Wellness Way Chiropractic in Burlington offers an effective means of preventing, decreasing, and in many cases eliminating the cause of your back pain without medication or surgery.
