Chiropractic Helps Work Disability in Waldorf, MD
Dr. Lipsitz has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1992. Chiropractic care may lower work absenteeism for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new survey, people who received chiropractic care tended to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this recent paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who had back or neck pain were surveyed. The researchers found that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain prompted them to lose work or caused them to makeerrors on the job.
The most significant finding, however, was that those employees who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless studies report that chiropractic is the perfect way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've found here in our clinic in Waldorf, MD.
