Chiropractic For Work Related Injuries

According to a report in the July issue of the Journal of the American Chiropractic Association, workers are able to get back to work quicker and less expensively when given chiropractic care over traditional medical care. A number of studies have already compared medical and chiropractic care for work-related back injuries.

Some of their results include:

  • chiropractic offers consistent 2-to-1 superiority
  • treatment costs in cases managed by doctors of chiropractic increased only 12 percent between 1986 and 1989, while treatment costs in cases managed by medical doctors increased 71 percent during the same period.

Other common work injuries chiropractors treat are postural-type strains to the neck and upper back and repetitive strain injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and tendinitis. If you've suffered a work-related musculoskeletal injury, join the millions who have got relief from natural chiropractic care.
