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 tended to miss fewer work days compared to people who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this 2013 study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who reported back or neck pain were questioned. The researchers discovered that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to miss work or resulted in them making errors on the job.
The most interesting discovery, however, was that those employees who saw a chiropractor had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
