Dr. Keith has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1989. Chiropractic care may lower the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new survey, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this 2013 study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who reported back and/or neck pain were questioned. The researchers found that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to miss work or caused them to make mistakes on the job.
The most significant finding, however, was that those employees who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Numerous research studies report that chiropractic care is the perfect way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've found here in our office in Rockwall, TX.
