desire for information and knowledge before you make that decision about back
surgery as your option for relief. Johnson Chiropractic feels you’ll appreciate
these researchers’ insights about back surgery and back surgeons and your
consideration of the Richmond chiropractic approach offered for back
From researchers at such prominent spine institutions such
as Cleveland Clinic, University of Southern California Los Angeles, University
of Miami Miller School of Medicine, and University of Wisconsin Department of
Orthopedics and Rehabilitation comes detailed information about spine surgery
statistics. Spine surgeons disagree about 75% of the time as to how to treat
low back pain
More specifically, these factors are influential:
- Location: Disagreement was highest among southwest surgeons
(82%) and lowest among midwest surgeons (69%).
- Practice Type: Disagreement was lower among academic
practice surgeons (56%) and higher among private practice surgeons (79%).
Academic-based practice surgeons are about 4 times more likely of choosing no
surgery than those in private practice.
- Specialty Training: Surgeons with fellowship training were
twice as likely to not do surgery than those without such training. (1)
And if you have degenerative lumbar scoliosis specifically, there
is confusion, too. There is variability as to non-operative and operative
management, as to the appropriateness of surgery as well as to the specific
surgical procedures that should be used. (2) Johnson Chiropractic is here to help
lessen the confusion and attempt relief with gentle Richmond
chiropractic care of your spine.
