  Are you INJURED AT WORK?
Chiropractic has been a blessing to millions of people hurt on the job, often saving them from years of pain, disability, drugs and surgery.

What Do Workers' Compensation Studies Reveal?
Among the most common on-the-job injury is spinal injury. As one expert has stated: We are now facing an epidemic of lower back disability in all western societies ...* Studies from a number of different states have shown what chiropractors have been saying for decades: "Hurt on the job? See your chiropractor."**

Cox Study
In a recent study of 1000 patient cases of back pain treated by 30 different Chiropractors, 93%, of whom used the Cox™ Technique to care for the patient's back pain, this technique is successful and well tolerated by patients according to their responses to the technique: see chart next page of results!

There are now in excess of 60+ scientific studies which demonstrate the value of manipulaton ... a most effective and cost-effective form of treatment for dysfunctional problems in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spine."*

 ALL WORKERS COMPENSATION cases should review their State laws regarding your legal rights for healthcare. Our experience is many EMPLOYERS & Work Comp Insurance companies unethically direct workers away from Chiropractic care, with intimidation,.... Just Wrong!
