Chiropractic patients less likely to undergo lumbar spine surgery

A study published recently in the medical journal Spine demonstrated a strong association between chiropractic treatment and the decreased likelihood of lumbar spine surgery.

Key study findings show patients under 35, women, Hispanics and patients whose first provider was a Doctor of Chiropractic (DC) had reduced odds of lumbar spine surgery.

Approximately 43% of patients who saw a surgeon first had surgery. Only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor first ended up having surgery.
