When you're trying to sustain your family, take care of your home, and pay all of your bills on time, every day at your work counts. Work injuries can be a big problem for many folks, and we see many of these types of injuries in our Saint Paul office. Dr. Slater appreciates your situation and is here to help you.
The perks of chiropractic treatment for work injuries are well-documented. A 2013 research paper involving over 600 adults who were suffering with either back or neck pain found that the individuals who didn't see a chiropractor missed work at twice the rate of those who were seeing a chiropractor.
According to the respondents in this study, two of the major factors were that they thought they needed a medical referral for chiropractic care (which is typically no longer true) and they overestimated the costs associated with chiropractic adjustments sessions by almost 70%.
The fact is, chiropractic patients actually spend less on care than medical patients, plus they are less likely to use drugs for their symptoms.
If you live in Saint Paul and you've been injured at work, we can help. Give our office a call today at (651) 699-3366 for an appointment.
