Juneau Work Disability and How Chiropractic Can Help

Do you suffer from back pain that affects your work? Dr. Messerschmidt in Juneau, AK is here to help! Chiropractic is a legitimate, effective way to help manage and prevent back or neck pain.

Dr. Messerschmidt has been helping people with work injuries since 1983. Chiropractic care may minimize work absenteeism for back and neck pain, according to recent research. In a new report, people who received chiropractic care managed to miss fewer work days in comparison to people who hadn't seen a chiropractic physician.

In this recent study, 650 laborers in Minnesota who had back or neck pain were questioned. The researchers discovered that most of those surveyed admitted that their back pain caused them to lose work or make errors on the job. The most significant finding, however, was that those workers who saw a chiropractic physician had 58% fewer disability days than those who didn't see a chiropractor!
