Work Injury Pain Relief with Chiropractic Care

Work Injuries: As of 1989 the National Institute of Handicap Research (NIHR) estimated that every year 560,000 workers sustain injury or illness which disables them for over 5 months.  Half of these never return to work.

The most common are lower back injuries and repetitive stress injuries; others include: knee, hip and joint injuries, rotator cuff injuries, and a variety of back and neck sprain/strains.

Most injured workers in this state who access chiropractic care do so after trying more traditional medical approaches.  Chiropractors use a natural approach to treating on the job injuries as opposed to medications that may merely mask pain and can cause serious side effects. Research studies sponsored by over a dozen state governments have proven time and time again that chiropractic is over twice as effective at getting injured workers back to work with half the disability and at half the cost. Without proper healing, it’s more likely that a work injury could later reoccur. What many people don’t realize (and their employer may not tell them) is that chiropractors and chiropractic treatments are covered by your workers’ compensation insurance.

The Minnesota workers’ compensation statutes entitle an employee to reasonable and necessary medical treatment or supplies to cure or relieve the effect of the work injury. The employer is required to furnish medical treatment as described in Minnesota Statutes 176.135, subd. 1, which includes psychological, chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, podiatric, surgical and hospital treatment.
