. Whether you have injured your back, your arm or shoulder, or any other area, you owe it to yourself to ensure that you have your injury examined and treated by the team at PPHC.
Chiropractors are experts in workplace injuries and can provide you with the care and support you need to return to your job as soon as possible. In fact, a recent study commissioned by the WSIB of Ontario compared the outcomes of injured workers who were seen by either a chiropractor versus other healthcare providers. On average, chiropractors were able to begin treatment of the injury within 3 days versus almost 2 weeks for other practitioners. After 12 weeks of care, there were twice as many patients still requiring therapy when compared to chiropractic whose patients were recovered from their injury. Chiropractic patients had much less pain when finished, far better clinical outcomes and better communication with their employer than those going to other therapies. Chiropractic patients, on average, missed only 9 days of work, versus 20 days in the other group, and a much higher percentage of them were fully returned to their previous state of health. The choice is clear. Make sure that you seek prompt care from your Chiropractic Doctor as soon as a workplace injury occurs because when we do our job – you can do yours.
