Work Injury and How Chiropractic Can Help

Do you struggle with back pain that causes you to miss days of work? Dr. Blake is here to help! Chiropractic is a legitimate, effective way to help treat and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Blake has been helping people with work injuries since 1983, and at our Harrisburg, PA clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been hurt on the job.

As mentioned in recent research, chiropractic care may minimize the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care managed to miss fewer work days compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.

In a recent paper, 650 laborers in Minnesota who reported back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors discovered that most of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to miss work or resulted in their making errors on the job. The most significant finding, however, was that those people 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 perfect way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've observed as well.
