Work Injury: How Chiropractic Can Help

Dr. Bhasin has been helping people with work injuries since 1990. Chiropractic care may minimize the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, as mentioned in recent research. In a new report, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractor.

In this 2013 paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were questioned. The authors discovered that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain prompted them to lose work or resulted in them making errors on the job.

The most significant discovery, however, was that those employees who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!

Numerous research studies report that chiropractic is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed here in our practice in Beaverton, Oregon.
