Do you suffer with back pain that causes you to miss days of work? Dr. Sweeney is here to help! Chiropractic is a legitimate, successful way to help manage and prevent back or neck pain. Dr. Sweeney has been providing care for people with work injuries since 2007, and at our Nashville, TN clinic, we specialize in treating patients who have been injured on the job.
According to recent research, chiropractic care may lower work absenteeism for back and neck pain. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care managed to miss fewer work days compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.In a 2013 paper, 650 workers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were questioned. The researchers discovered that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain caused them to lose work or resulted in their making errors on the job. The most significant discovery, however, was that the workers who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless research studies report that chiropractic is the optimal way to treat and even prevent back pain, and that's what we've found as well.
