When you're trying to support your family, take care of your household, and pay all of your bills on time, every day at your job counts. Work injuries can be a huge problem for many folks, and we see many of these types of injuries in our Juneau, AK office. Dr. Messerschmidt appreciates your situation and is here to help.
The benefits of chiropractic for work injuries are well-established. A 2013 research paper involving over 600 adults who were suffering with either back or neck pain found that the people who didn't see a chiropractor missed work at twice the rate of those who were seeing a chiropractor.
So, why don't more people use chiropractic?
According to the respondents in this report, two of the major reasons 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 treatment sessions by almost 70 percent.
The truth 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 Juneau, AK and you've been injured at work, we can help. Give our office a call today at (907) 789-1344 for an appointment.
