Dentists. Chefs. Flight attendants. Medicare retirees. This is just the beginning of the list. Each of these people face the risk for back and/or neck pain. Several professions are simply create more risk due to the nature of their job. Setting up an appointment to see a
chiropractor for these neuromusculoskeletal and musculoskeletal conditions

are spinal conditions chiropractic physicians are trained and skilled to
manage. And in Sitka, Arctic Chiropractic, Sitka helps contain the risk and
reduce the pain for Sitka workers of all vocations AND avocations!
In a recent report, researchers compared patients (Medicare
beneficiaries from 66 to 99 years of age) seeing a
chiropractor versus a primary care physician (PCP). The patients desired 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)
