Work Disability and How Chiropractic Can Provide Relief
Dr. Skon has been helping people with work injuries since 1985. Chiropractic care may lower work absenteeism for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new survey, chiropractic patients tended to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this 2013 paper, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were questioned. The authors discovered that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in them makingmistakes on the job.
The most significant discovery, however, was that those workers who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Many research studies report that chiropractic care is the perfect way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed here in our office in Saint Paul, MN.
