Seeing a Chiropractor after back surgery can be helpful if the surgery has been at least 6 months ago. It also depends on what type of back surgery the person had done. A chiropractor is well trained to know what to do and more importantly what NOT to do. If you have had back surgery, I am assuming you already have a chiropractor and their treatments failed.
