Hopkins, MN Work Disability and How Chiropractic Can Help
Dr. Sagedahl has been helping people with work injuries since starting into practice in 2004. Chiropractic care may lower work absenteeism for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new survey, chiropractic patients tended to miss fewer work days compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this recent study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were questioned. The authors found that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain caused them to lose work or caused them to make errors on the job.
The most significant discovery, however, was that the employees who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless studies report that chiropractic care is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed at Full Motion Chiropractic here in Hopkins, MN.
