your back, your arm or shoulder, or any other area, you owe it to yourself to
ensure that you have your injury examined and treated by a Chiropractic Doctor.
experts in workplace injuries, and can provide you with the care and support you
need to return to your job as soon as possible. In fact, a recent study
commissioned by the WSIB in Ontario in 2004 compared the outcomes of injured
workers who were seen by either a Chiropractic Doctor or a physical therapist.
The results were significant. On average, Chiropractors were able to begin
treatment of the injury within 3 days, versus almost 2 weeks for physical
therapy. After 12 weeks of care, there were twice as many patients still
requiring physical therapy, compared to Chiropractic. Chiropractic patients had much
less pain when finished, far better clinical outcomes, and better communication
with their employer than those going to physical therapy. Chiropractic
patients, on average, missed only 9 days from work, versus 20 days in the other
group, and a much higher percentage of them were fully returned to their
previous state of health. The choice
is clear. Make sure that you seek prompt care from your Chiropractic Doctor as
soon as a workplace injury occurs because when we do our job.......you can do
