Hello everyone, it's Dr. Aaron Seaton again with The Chiropractic Place. Today's video is about discs and chiropractic. Often, people get told that they have degenerative disc disease or wear and tear in their discs, and it's important for people to understand just how important it is to take care of these and maintain them and get regular chiropractic care. If you're having disc issues, you must take care of them regularly. And why is it so important? Spinal surgeries for degenerative disc disease have complication rates as high as 55%. So 55% of the time, these surgeries have complex problems that can develop. So if you're just thinking, hey, down the road, I have a degenerative disc down in my low back, I'm getting low back pain, hey, maybe in the future, I'll have surgery. Well, these are very complex surgeries with very high complication rates. So what I always recommend to my patients is why we take x-rays at my office here. If we see these early, I always tell my patients this is something they need to take care of. It's not going to go away, and if we maintain it and get this adjusted regularly with other lifestyle changes, you can do well with these.
But if you're ignoring it and you need to take care of it, you can start developing serious problems and take a look at this solution, that's not very good numbers. When you look at spinal surgeries for degenerative disc disease, if we're having complications with this 55% of the time, that doesn't sound like a great solution. So if you have degenerative disc disease in your lower back or neck, we can help you with those. We can help provide a much better quality of life because one of the most important things you can do when a disc is wearing out is to keep that disc moving, and what helps restore motion to those discs? Chiropractic care. I'm Dr. Aaron Seaton with The Chiropractic Place.
