Why Chiropractic?

CONSIDER THESE CONDITIONS AND STATISTICS…

  • 16 million Americans woke up this morning with low back pain, and 8 million of those couldn’t get out of bed
  • Half of all Americans will be disabled at some time because of back pain
  • There are more than 600,000 disc surgeries performed every year in the United States. National statistics show that 9 out of 10 lower back surgeries are unnecessary, and more than one half are failures
  • Research has shown that more than 91% of patients with lower back pain treated by Chiropractors improve


WHIP LASH

  • More than 1 million people are exposed to whiplash injury in the United States every year — approximately 25% of these cases result in chronic pain and disability
  • One in seven whiplash patients still has significant pain after more than 3 years; the average is 8 years
  • A recent study in the "Journal of Chiropractic Medicine" stated that Chiropractic was the "only proven effective treatment for chronic whiplash.”


FIBROMYALGIA

  • Fibromyalgia — a chronic disorder that causes musculoskeletal pain and fatigue — affects 3 to 6 million Americans
  • Nutrition, exercise and regular chiropractic adjustments have all shown to play a role in reducing pain and other symptoms, while improving whole body health


SCOLIOSIS

  • According to the Scoliosis Research Society, about 1 million children of the United States have some degree of scoliosis — an abnormal curvature of the spine
  • Chiropractic adjustments may prevent further malformation or alleviate some of the debilitating aspects of scoliosis
