The latest figures show that there are over 500,000 spinal surgeries each year in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can avoid this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Aazami is here to make sure that patients in Hyattsville, District Heights have a healthy, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many patients heal from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are many reasons to avoid unnecessary medical procedures: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Fortunately, as one study has found, chiropractic may actually keep you out of the operating room entirely.
In this report, about 1,900 workers with back injuries were evaluated over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having back surgery. 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 surgery.
If you live in the Hyattsville, District Heights area, Dr. Aazami can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (301) 322-7777 for more information or an appointment.
