When you're trying to support your family, take care of your household, and pay all of your bills on time, every day at work counts. Work injuries can be a huge problem for many people, and we see many of these types of injuries in our St. Petersburg, FL office. Dr. Kristin Eloshway-Kidgell understands your situation and is here to help.
The benefits of chiropractic for work injuries are well-documented. A 2013 research paper involving 651 adults who were troubled with either back or neck pain found that the individuals 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 primary factors were that they thought they needed a 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 reality is, chiropractic patients actually spend less on care than medical patients, plus they are less likely to use drugs for their symptoms.
