Injury and Rehabilitation Chiropractic Services
Millions of people every year receive chiropractic care for an injury that they sustained while at work or while driving in their car. Injuries can happen at any time and any place. If you are involved in an accident, chiropractic care can help you to get rid of pain, regain your function and heal with minimal use of drugs and surgery.
Many studies have shown that if an injured person uses chiropractic care as their primary source of health care, the incidence of surgery in that individual is greatly reduced. The likelihood of surgery for workers with back injuries whose first point of contact is a surgeon or MD is a frightening 42.7% versus the 1.5% of those whose first point of contact is a chiropractic doctor.

In a study on low back pain, it was shown that only 56% of medical care recipients showed a 30% reduction in low back pain after 4 weeks of care. However 94% of chiropractic care recipients showed a 30% reduction in low back pain after the same amount of care, without medication. Source: Schneider M, et al. Spine, 2015. Studies have also found chiropractic care to be more affordable than traditional medical care. This makes sense since the reduction of surgery and medications is so profound. Conservative care is cost effective. Low back pain care initiated by a chiropractic doctor(DC) is 20% cheaper than low back pain care initiated by a medical doctor (MD).
