The spine is one of the most important and most delicate points in our entire body. When you come into a clinic to speak with a doctor about your spinal condition, they will often recommend surgery to bring the spine back into alignment. However, other alternative treatment methods to spinal surgery are just as effective, if not more, with none of the risks that come with a surgical procedure.
The spine is extremely fragile and an important component of the complex structure of the body. It houses the central nervous system, which controls signals from the brain to the rest of the body and back. If even one disc is out of place, it can wreak havoc on the body, and cause major issues with the rest of the spinal alignment, your immunity, movement, ability to prevent future damage and injuries, and your body’s overall function.
If you have a spinal misalignment and you go in for surgery, there are a multitude of potential risks and side effects that could cause possibly lifelong effects and damage, such as:
- Damaged communication through the central nervous system
- Digestive problems
- Skin issues
- And more
Thankfully, if you have a slipped disc, herniated disc, or another spinal injury or trauma, there are alternative treatments to spinal surgery that can help you find the relief you seek.
