Dr. Blake has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1983. 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 managed to miss fewer work days in comparison to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this recent paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who reported back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors discovered that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain prompted them to lose work or resulted in them makingerrors on the job.
The most interesting discovery, however, was that those people who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless 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 practice in Harrisburg, PA.
