Work Disability and How Chiropractic Can Help

Do you struggle with back pain that causes you to miss days of work? Dr. Adkins is here to help! Chiropractic care is a legitimate, effective way to help manage and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Adkins has been providing care for people with work injuries since 1994, and at our West Seattle, WA clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been hurt on the job.

According to recent research, chiropractic care may reduce the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain. In a new survey, 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 had back or neck pain were questioned. The researchers found that most of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to lose work or resulted in their making errors on the job. The most interesting finding, however, was that those workers who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!

Numerous research studies report that chiropractic is the optimal way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have found as well.
