I can’t fix bad surgery
“The worst thing patients can do is go out and have surgery first. Musculoskeletal surgery is permanent and is not always successful. Then they come to us and want us to try to make it better. Sometimes we can help but really it would be better if they saw a chiropractor first, before going under the knife.” —Jeff Williams, DC, Creek Stone Integrated Care in Amarillo, Texas
Here are 50 secrets your surgeon won’t tell you.
Your boss doesn’t care about your bad back
“Work responsibilities tend to cause people to take on more than they can or should. Many times I’ll see some great early progress only to see the patient go and aggravate their complaint because they didn’t want to get in trouble at work or in school athletics.” —Jeff Williams

“Often I hear people say that they ‘don’t believe’ in chiropractic care, but there is decades of research backing our profession, much done by governments, academics, and even the medical profession. This isn’t something you believe in or not, like magic, it’s rooted in science and can be quite powerful.” —Jeff Williams
