Dr. Palmer has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1996. Chiropractic care may minimize work absenteeism for back and neck pain, as mentioned in recent research. In a new report, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this recent study, 650 workers in Minnesota who reported back or neck pain were questioned. The authors discovered that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in them makingerrors on the job.
The most significant finding, however, was that the workers who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Many research 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 clinic in Depew, NY.
