Do you struggle with back or neck pain that causes you to miss days of work? Dr. Pozarnsky in Fargo, ND is here to help! Chiropractic is a proven, effective way to help manage and prevent spinal pain.
Chiropractic care may reduce the number of missed worked days for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new report, chiropractic patients managed to miss fewer workdays compared to patients who hadn't seen a chiropractor.
In this 2013 survey, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back and/or neck pain were questioned. The researchers discovered that most of those surveyed stated that their back pain prompted them to miss work or caused them to making mistakes on the job.
The most interesting finding, 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 care is the optimal way to manage and even prevent back pain, and that's what we have observed here in our practice in Fargo, ND.
So why are chiropractic patients more resilient to back and neck pain? Once chiropractors ease your pain, they move onto helping you identify ways to prevent the pain from recurring. Dr. Pozarnsky will have a thorough conversation with you about any daily habits, posture, or improper ergonomics that could be contributing to your pain. And with periodic check ups, he can ensure your spine is properly aligned. Just like going to the dentist periodically for a cleaning, visiting a chiropractor even when you don't have any apparent problem can go a long way to prevent future issues from occurring.
