Dr. Helton has been helping people with work injuries since 1980. Chiropractic care may lower the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, as mentioned in recent research. In a new survey, chiropractic patients tended to miss fewer work days in comparison to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this recent paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who reported back or neck pain were questioned. The researchers found that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in them makingerrors on the job.
The most significant discovery, however, was that those workers 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 perfect way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed here in our practice in Portland (Woodstock, Sellwood).
