Workers, Older and Young, Benefit from McHenry Chiropractic Care

Dentists. Chefs. Flight attendants. Medicare retirees. And there are many more. All are at some risk for back and/or neck pain. Some just have more risk. Seeing a chiropractor for these neuromusculoskeletal and musculoskeletal conditions makes sense. Back pain and neck pain and the similar arm pain and leg pain are spinal conditions chiropractic physicians are trained and skilled to manage. And in McHenry, OrthoIllinois Chiropractic helps contain the risk and reduce the pain for McHenry workers of all vocations AND hobbies!

In a recent report, researchers compared patients (Medicare beneficiaries from 66 to 99 years of age) seeking care from a chiropractor versus a primary care physician (PCP). The patients needed care for a neuromusculoskeletal problem. The probability of injury or risk of injury to head/neck/trunk of a patient within 7 days of the visit was 76% LOWER for chiropractic office visit patients than those patients who saw a PCP:

  • Chiropractic: only 40 per 100,000 patients
  • PCP: 152 per 100,000 patients (1)

Therefore, come see your McHenry chiropractor - your back pain specialist - for your neuromusculoskeletal aches and pains! Our gentle chiropractic care - the evidence-based Cox Technic - is so relieving.

But it’s not just the Medicare set who may benefit from McHenry chiropractic care.
