Dr. Weary has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1982. Chiropractic care may lower the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new report, chiropractic patients tended to miss fewer work days in comparison to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this recent study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who reported back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The researchers discovered that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain prompted them to miss work or resulted in them making mistakes on the job.
The most significant discovery, however, was that those people who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Numerous research studies report that chiropractic is the optimal way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've observed here in our clinic in Prescott, AZ.
