Back Surgery Is Not for Everyone.

In a recent paper published in the Medical Journal of Australia, the authors noted that while spinal surgeries have increased over time, the current data does not support surgical intervention for low back pain outside of cases of lumbar radiculopathy that doesn’t respond to non-surgical care and when low back pain is associated with cancer, infection, or gross spinal instability. Otherwise, treatment guidelines strongly emphasize utilizing conservative, non-surgical approaches to manage low back pain, of which chiropractic care is an excellent choice.
