Surgery Advice from an Owen Sound Chiropractor

When you feel pain, whether in the back or another part of your body, it’s frightening. It’s debilitating. And sometimes, it’s just downright inconvenient. You want it to go away fast, and no one can blame you. But while the recommendation to get surgery might seem like the quickest route to better health, that’s not always the truth.

Here at Advanced Pain Relief Clinic, our team of physiotherapists, chiropractors, kinesiologists, massage therapists, pedorthists and nutritionist see many cases like yours every year, and there’s one thing we can tell you for sure: Surgery isn’t always the right choice. If you’re trying to choose between chiropractic care and an operation, here are a few things to think about.

Considering Surgery or Chiropractic

In our modern day and age, numerous treatment options exist that can keep you from having to undergo surgery. While physicians may recommend a procedure as a simple option, that doesn’t mean you’ve explored all your options. A better bet is to speak with a chiropractor first. Our team is not opposed to using surgery as a last resort, but we believe in helping you find pain relief, wherever possible, in a noninvasive manner. If that sounds good to you, talk to our chiropractor today.

Is It Time for Back Surgery?

Our take on back surgery is that it’s a great option … when it’s needed. Before we recommend it, though, we always help you explore the less invasive options first. These may include:

  • Manual adjustments
  • Corrective exercises
  • Physical therapy
  • Spinal decompression
  • Massage therapy
  • Laser therapy
