There are many instances where patients suffering with herniated discs, lower back pain or shoulder/knee injuries will opt for surgical repair. Because theses surgeries are so delicate and complex, there are several risk factors involved. Some patients have great success with surgery and many do not. At Harbor Family Chiropractic, Costa Mesa California, we hope that all patients use surgery as a last resort. We also help those who have had surgery in their backs and/or joints through rehabilitative care and treatments which can further aid their mobility and pain relief. We are equipped with physical therapy modalities and skilled with therapeutic techniques that help to reduce scar tissue build up that can occur with surgeries.
