Work Injury and How Chiropractic Can Help
Dr. Gomez has been helping people with work injuries since 2001. Chiropractic care may reduce work absenteeism for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new report, chiropractic patients tended 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 or neck pain were surveyed. The authors discovered that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to lose work or caused them to makeerrors 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 is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed here in our clinic in Charlotte, NC.
