Work Disability and Chiropractic

Do you struggle with back pain that causes you to miss days of work? Dr. Skon is here to help! Chiropractic care is a legitimate, effective way to help treat and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Skon has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1985, and at our Saint Paul, MN clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been hurt on the job.

According to recent research, chiropractic care may lower the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care managed to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.

In a recent study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors found that most of those surveyed stated that their back pain caused them to miss work or caused them to make mistakes on the job. The most interesting finding, however, was that the 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 is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have found as well.
