Do you suffer from back pain that affects your work? Dr. Stern is here to help! Chiropractic care is a well-known, effective way to help treat and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Stern has been helping people with work injuries since 2006, and at our Sunnyvale clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been injured on the job.
According to recent research, chiropractic care may lower the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care tended to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In a recent paper, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were questioned. The researchers discovered that many of those surveyed admitted that their back pain prompted them to miss work or resulted in their making errors on the job. The most significant discovery, however, was that those workers who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Many studies report that chiropractic care is the perfect way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have found as well.
