Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Colorado Springs chiropractic care at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Colorado Springs chiropractic patients understand that seeing their chiropractor at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR is valuable. Their back pain and neck pain eases. Colorado Springs chiropractic patients feel better when they leave The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR. A benefit Colorado Springs chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize because they are chiropractic patients currently is that seeing a chiropractor reduces the chance of back surgery. A recent report stated that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider visited for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who consulted a surgeon|first consulted a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who went to a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Furthermore, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This tie between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is documented particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is outlined in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Colorado Springs back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is pleasing!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was considering back surgery when she visited him for her back pain and found relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR wishes joy for all our Colorado Springs back pain patients to boost their back pain and their outlook on life.
