When you're trying to support 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 big problem for many people, and we see many of these types of injuries in our Anchorage office. Dr. Matthisen appreciates your situation and is here to help.
The advantages of chiropractic care for work injuries are well-documented. A 2013 research paper involving 651 adults who were suffering with either back or neck pain found that the people who didn't see a chiropractor missed work at twice the rate of those who were seeing a chiropractor.
According to the respondents in this report, two of the primary 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 Anchorage and you've been injured at work, we can help. Give our office a call today at (907) 349-4212 for an appointment.
