Work Disability and How Chiropractic Can Help
Do you suffer from back pain that affects your work? Dr. Green is here to help! Chiropractic care is a legitimate, successful way to help treat and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Green has been helping people with work injuries since 2006, and at our Bonita Springs, FL clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been injured on the job.
As mentioned in recent research, chiropractic care may reduce work absenteeism for back and neck pain. In a new report, chiropractic patients tended to miss fewer work days in comparison to people who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In a recent paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who reported back or neck pain were questioned. The authors found that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to lose work or caused them to make mistakes on the job. The most significant finding, however, was that those employees who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Many research studies report that chiropractic is the perfect way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed as well.
