Healthy News December 2018 Lower Odds of Back Surgery & Depression

Getting Watertown chiropractic care at Watertown Wellness Center first may reduce the odds of back surgery need and depression.  


Watertown chiropractic patients realize that seeing their chiropractor at Watertown Wellness Center is beneficial. Their back pain and neck pain eases. Watertown chiropractic patients feel better when they leave Watertown Wellness Center. A benefit Watertown chiropractic patients may not necessarily realize since they are chiropractic patients presently is that seeing a chiropractor lowers the odds of back surgery. A new report stated that there is a “very strong association” between back surgery and the first healthcare provider visited for the back pain issue. 42.7% of workers who consulted a surgeon|first consulted a surgeon first had surgery while only 1.5% of those who visited a chiropractor first had back surgery. (1) Plus, the chiropractic adjustment really boosts the autonomic nervous system. This link between the autonomic nervous system and the adjustment is noted particularly for a tension-type headache sufferer with major depression whose relief is outlined in a new published case report. (2) For a depressed Watertown back pain patient, any relief from chiropractic care is pleasing!

Listen to this PODCAST with Dr. Kevin Keyes on The Back Doctor’s Podcast with Dr. Michael Johnson about a patient who was thinking about back surgery when she visited him for her back pain and found relief with his chiropractic care using the Cox® Technic System.

Watertown Wellness Center wishes joy for all our Watertown back pain patients to improve their back pain and their outlook on life.
