Charlotte, NC Work Injury and How Chiropractic Can Help

Do you suffer from back pain that affects your work? Dr. Gomez is here to help! Chiropractic is a legitimate, successful way to help treat and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Gomez has been providing care for people with work injuries since 2001, and at our Charlotte, NC clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been hurt on the job.

As mentioned in recent research, chiropractic care may reduce work absenteeism for back and neck pain. 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 a 2013 study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who reported back or neck pain were questioned. The authors found that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in their making errors on the job. The most interesting finding, however, was that those workers 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 perfect way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've found as well.
