Work Injury and How Chiropractic Can Help
Dr. Schulz has been providing care for people with work injuries since 2003. Chiropractic care may lower work absenteeism for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new survey, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days in comparison to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this recent paper, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors found that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to miss work or resulted in them makingmistakes on the job.
The most significant finding, however, was that the workers who saw a chiropractor 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've found here in our practice in Mandeville, LA.
