Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although sometimes it's necessary to have surgery for back pain, the fact is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Aazami is here to make sure that people in Rockville 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 plenty of reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recuperation time and additional complications, neither of which is a desirable scenario. Luckily, as one medical study has found, chiropractic adjustments may actually keep you off the surgeon's table altogether.
In this report, 1,885 workers with back injuries were assessed over a three year period. When the workers first sought treatment with a surgeon, over 42 percent wound up having surgery for their pain. For those who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back pain without surgery.
If you live in the Rockville area, Dr. Aazami can probably help you with your back pain. Give our office a call today at (240) 221-2666 for more information or an appointment.
