Facts about back surgery:
- It is established medical practice that physicians should wait at least 2 months before recommending surgery.
- 90% of back pain patients will improve by this time.
- Studies from Harvard University on a 10 year period trial showed no difference in the outcome between patient treated surgically and those treated non-surgically .
- Data comparing the outcome between DC’s (Doctor of Chiropractic) and MD’s back pain patients related to cost and work days show that MD’s patients cost far more than DC’s patients ($23,000 MD compared to $2,500 DC).
