Study shows Chiropractic reduces surgery by 96%

What type of Doctor to see first?
An important Study finds...

The likelihood of surgery is... Directly Related to the type of doctor you first consult.

A 2013 study published in the United States, in the highly respected journal Spine, showed that out of nearly 2000 patients:

If a patient first saw a medical doctor surgeon, the likelihood of having surgery was 42%.

If a patient first saw a Chiropractor, the likelihood of having surgery was less than 2%.

Overall surgery was reduced by 96%, just by seeing a Chiropractor first!

Some injure themselves while golfing, playing tennis or some other recreational activity, while others get hurt from auto accidents.

We all want to get back to regular life quickly and be able to go about our lives as normally as possible.
