Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Vancouver chiropractic care at Vancouver Disc Centers first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Vancouver chiropractic patients know that seeing their chiropractor at Vancouver Disc Centers is valuable. Their back pain and neck pain gets better. Vancouver chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Vancouver Disc Centers. A benefit Vancouver chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize since they are chiropractic patients already is that seeing a chiropractor lowers the odds of back surgery. A new report stated that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider seen for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who visited a surgeon|first saw a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who visited a chiropractor first underwent back surgery. (1) Furthermore, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This connection between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is noted particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is outlined in a new published case report. (2) For a depressed Vancouver back pain sufferer, any relief from chiropractic care is acceptable!

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 implementing the Cox® Technic System.

Vancouver Disc Centers wishes joy for all our Vancouver back pain patients to boost their back pain and their outlook on life.
