How to Avoid Surgery for Back Pain

Burke natural back pain treatment

Although some people are still skeptical about chiropractic care, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.

Dr. Zapf has seen many back pain patients in our Burke office who have been in pain for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Dr. Zapf has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky back surgery, and the science backs up our experience.

Research Shows Chiropractic Helps You Avoid Risky Surgery

Recently, in one study conducted on about 2,000 Washington State employees who suffered from a back injury while on the job, more than 42% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the people who first sought treatment with chiropractic, showing that this non-invasive approach is extremely effective at keeping you out of the operating room.

Dr. Zapf Can Help Clients Find Relief From Back Pain Without Surgery

There are alternatives to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain. Dr. Zapf has helped many patients in Burke recover. Give our office a call today at (703) 455-9555 for an appointment.
