Work Disability and How Chiropractic Can Provide Relief
Dr. Hitchcock has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1978. Chiropractic care may reduce the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, as mentioned in recent research. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care tended to miss fewer work days in comparison to people who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this recent study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors discovered that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in them makingerrors on the job.
The most significant finding, however, was that those employees who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Many studies report that chiropractic care is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've found here in our office in Athens, GA.
