Do you suffer from back pain that affects your work? Dr. Sweeney in Nashville, TN is here to help! Chiropractic care is a well-known, effective way to help treat and prevent back or neck pain.
Dr. Sweeney has been helping people with work injuries since 2007. Chiropractic care may reduce the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, as mentioned in recent research. In a new report, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer work days in comparison to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.
In this 2013 paper, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were surveyed. The authors found that many of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to lose work or caused them to make mistakes on the job.
The most significant discovery, however, was that the workers who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
Countless 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 office in Nashville, TN.
