Do you suffer from back pain that causes you to miss days of work? Dr. Palmer is here to help! Chiropractic is a proven, effective way to help manage and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Palmer has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1996, and at our Depew, NY clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been hurt on the job.
According to recent research, chiropractic care may reduce work absenteeism for back and neck pain. In a new survey, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In a 2013 paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors found that most of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to lose work or resulted in their making errors on the job. The most interesting discovery, however, was that those people who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless research studies report that chiropractic is the perfect way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed as well.
