Work Injury and How Chiropractic Can Provide Relief
Dr. Baker has been helping people with work injuries since 2001. Chiropractic care may lower work absenteeism for back and neck pain, as mentioned in recent research. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care tended to miss fewer work days in comparison to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this recent study, 650 workers in Minnesota who had back or neck pain were surveyed. The researchers found that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in them makingerrors on the job.
The most significant discovery, however, was that the people who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Numerous research studies report that chiropractic care is the optimal way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have found here in our office in Middleburg Heights, OH.
