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 job counts. Work injuries can be a serious problem for many people, and we see many of these types of injuries in our Arlington, WA office. Dr. Ernst appreciates your situation and is here to help.
The benefits of chiropractic for work injuries are well-established. A 2013 survey involving over 600 adults who were suffering with either back or neck pain found that the men and women 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 care?
According to the participants in this paper, 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 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 Arlington, WA and you've been injured at work, we can help. Give our office a call today at (360) 659-8464 for an appointment.
