Dr. Green has successfully treated hundreds of patients with work injuries. In fact, chiropractic care may minimize work absenteeism from back and neck pain, as suggested by a recent study. The results showed that chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this 2013 paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The researchers found that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain prompted them to lose work or resulted in them making mistakes on the job.
The most interesting finding, however, was that the people who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless research studies report that chiropractic care is the optimal way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed here in our practice in Estero, FL.
