How You May Be Able to Avoid Outpatient Surgery

Bottom Line:  You may need surgery.  That’s a line that no one looks forward to crossing. Fortunately, many surgeries are elective which means you may have a choice beyond going under the knife. As a matter of fact, a recent study showed people under chiropractic care were able to reduce their chances of having an outpatient surgery or procedure by 62%!

Why it Matters: Surgery is always the last option, never the first choice. Even outpatient procedures have considerable risks. Chiropractic care not only saves you money, but can reduce your downtime and risk of complications. Believe it or not, some people jump to surgery before trying chiropractic care. As Doogie Howser, MD once said, “there is so much to life that I don’t understand.”

Next Steps: If you or a friend has been recommended an outpatient surgery, ask your chiropractor their opinion first! Many large surgery centers have begun to use chiropractors as their first point of contact. This helps patients get the best medical advice from many point of views. It’s always better to stay conservative with your healthcare.

 Cafe of Life Chiropractic Center were highly recommended to me by a few of my neighbors. I had some long time lower back and neck issues that were bothering me -- and it was just time to fix the problem. I signed up for a 2 month program -- and wow, the results are amazing. My neck is moving again, my lower back feels great, and other parts are that I didn’t know were stuck are moving again too! Cafe of Life is technology forward -- I love the scans of my back so that I can see the progress. They also have complimentary services like massage too. The team over at Cafe of Life is professional, fun and on top of their game. Scheduling is easy -- little to no waiting when I arrive for my adjustment. Love these guys!
