Each year, over 500,000 people have back surgery in the US. Although in some cases it's necessary to have back surgery, the reality is that if you can prevent this type of invasive procedure, you're often better off.
Dr. Vinick is here to make sure that people in Redondo Beach have a natural, non-surgical option for back problems. We've helped many people recover from back pain without the need for surgery.
There are countless reasons to avoid unnecessary medical treatments: Surgeries often result in a longer recovery time and complications, neither of which is an acceptable scenario. Thankfully, as one medical study has found, chiropractic care may actually keep you off the surgeon's table altogether.
In this paper, 1,885 workers with back injuries were examined over a three year period. When the workers first sought care with a surgeon, over 42 percent ended up having surgery for their pain. For subjects who saw only a chiropractor, only 1.5 percent had surgery!
These findings imply that chiropractic care can help you recover from back discomfort without surgical procedures.
If you live in the Redondo Beach area, Dr. Vinick can probably help you with your back problems. Give our office a call today at (310) 375-4325 for more information or an appointment.
