Dr. Liveriadis has been helping people with work injuries since 1987. Chiropractic care may reduce the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, according to recent research. 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 this 2013 study, 650 workers in Minnesota who reported back or neck pain were questioned. The researchers found that most of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to miss work or resulted in them makingmistakes on the job.
The most interesting discovery, however, was that the people who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Many studies report that chiropractic is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have found here in our clinic in Oakleigh, VIC.
