Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Carrolltown chiropractic care at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation first may lessen the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Carrolltown chiropractic patients realize that visiting their chiropractor at Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation is beneficial. Their back pain and neck pain eases. Carrolltown chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation. A benefit Carrolltown chiropractic patients may not necessarily appreciate since they are chiropractic patients already is that seeing a chiropractor lowers the chance of back surgery. A recent report noted that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider consulted for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who consulted a surgeon|first saw a surgeon first underwent surgery while only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first had back surgery. (1) Plus, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This tie between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is recorded particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is outlined in a new published paper. (2) For a depressed Carrolltown 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 discovered relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

Gormish Chiropractic & Rehabilitation wishes joy for all our Carrolltown back pain patients to improve their back pain and their outlook on life.
