AMA Recommends Chiropractic Before Surgery

Although some people are still skeptical about chiropractic care, even the American Medical Association (AMA) recommends that adjustments should be tried prior to surgery--the one option that should be a last resort.

Buffalo Chiropractic Center has seen many back pain patients in our Depew/Lancaster office who have been in pain for years and who are afraid that they might need an operation for their back pain. Our chiropractor Dr. Palmer has had great success in helping patients recover and avoid risky surgery, and the science backs up our experience.


Recently, in one study carried out on almost 2,000 Washington State employees who suffered from a back injury while on the job, more than 42% who saw a surgeon first following their injury found themselves having back surgery within three years. That compares to just 1.5% of the people who first sought treatment with chiropractic, showing that this natural approach is very effective at keeping you out of the operating room.

There are alternatives to risky medical procedures. Chiropractic is a proven effective and safe way to improve the function of your spine, which is the root cause of back pain. Buffalo Chiropractic Center has helped many patients in Depew and Lancaster recover and get back to normal. Give our office a call today at (716) 668-2225 for an appointment.
