A number of studies on Workers Compensation have shown that chiropractic care is often superior to medical care in the treatment of on-the-job back and neck injuries, leading to employees going back to work sooner and with lower overall treatment costs.
A recent independent study, “Health Maintenance Care in Work-Related Low Back Pain and Its Association with Disability Recurrence,” (JOEM, April 2011) concluded chiropractic care to be more effective for common, work-related, low back pain (LBP), when compared to treatment by a physical therapist or physician. Overall, chiropractic patients illustrated lower medical expenses, fewer disability recurrences and shorter initial periods of disability.
