Why invest in chiropractic care at the workplace?

On-site chiropractic care is becoming increasingly popular as more and more companies invest in health and wellness programs.

These programs not only help retain and attract top talent but they also help reduce company healthcare costs related to employee personal time off and sick leave.

Not only that, better health and wellbeing helps employees feel good on the job, increasing productivity and engagement.

What is on-site chiropractic care?

On-site chiropractic care is when a company chooses to invest in health & safety at the workplace as part of a wellness program.

Depending on the formula chosen (weekly, monthly etc.), the Doctor of Chiropractic will bring in 1 to 3 portable chiropractic tables to the workplace. This can quickly and simply turn conference rooms into a temporary clinic.

Employees can then book appointments based on a program defined with the HR services. Consultations, which are very quick (10-15 minutes) take place during employee work-time and are limited only to the availability of the chiropractor.

There are two types of chiropractic sessions that can be combined; private and open space.

Private Sessions are one-to-one sessions with the chiropractor during which the Doctor of Chiropractic will take the employee information, listen to their health concerns, and eventually use a thermographic scanner to identify neurological interferences in the back.

These sessions are great for first-time visits but not exactly needed for future sessions where generally only manual adjustments are needed.

In this scenario, groups of up to 20 company employees will first follow a conference on chiropractic. This allows us to present our practice and address employees’ questions and concerns beforehand. This way, we can dedicate employee visits completely too manual chiropractic adjustments, allowing visits to last between 10-15 minutes.

Our conferences also provide in-depth posture, exercise, and lifestyle recommendations, which, when presented at a group level, provides a very cost & time effective solution for the employer.

What are Safety and Health at work conferences?

It’s not hard to imagine that anything that is repeated for over 40 hours a week, for up to half of a person’s life, will have health effects. Employees who work long hours on computers, often with poor posture, will present different needs than employees who work on construction sites or those who are in sales or who stand for long hours. When we conduct a ‘Safety and Health’ work conference, we’ll first assess the company’s specific needs to adapt our presentation and posture demonstrations to the company’s workspace and work material. By consulting a representative population of your employee base (around 10%) and assessing the work environment in advance, we can gather information to personalize our proposal. During these conferences, our chiropractors can also provide additional recommendations such as advice on nutrition, proper posture, at-desk exercises, stretching, and finally breathing and stress-relief techniques.

Why are chiropractic services are becoming popular in the workplace?

Chiropractic care is especially important for workplace wellness, health, and safety as it’s been proven effective in treating and preventing most of the worst health-issues that affect today’s workers. In fact, regular access to a chiropractor can help improve and prevent:

Correct spinal alignment is the first step in reducing stress. When the spine isn’t aligned, the nervous system isn’t able to properly send messages through the body. Chiropractic adjustments help align the spine which improves system communication and efficiency. Adjustments also help release muscle tension and improved blood circulation so that the body can return to a more relaxed state. In addition, chiropractors can share nutritional, exercise, postural and relaxation tips to help employees better manage stress.

Misaligned vertebrae cause a host of neuromusculoskeletal problems, including back pain. A sedentary lifestyle, inactivity, coupled with poor posture problems are a leading cause of back pain and is frequent among employees who spend long hours working on a computer. As mentioned above, chiropractors help correct these misalignments of the spine through manual adjustments.

The second source of back pain is micro-trauma due to repeating unadapted movements. We see these typical problems in workers who handle (heavy) material at work or repeatedly use heavy machinery or tools.

Long-term computer work greatly increases the likelihood of developing elbow tendonitis. To prevent and correct this, the chiropractor will ensure the proper functioning of the elbow, the wrist, but also and especially the neck from where the nerves of the elbow originate. Tendinitis is treated faster when the person is followed by a chiropractor. It also develops less in people followed by a chiropractor. This improves employee comfort, reduces work stoppages, and improves employee productivity. It is important to couple care with a change in the employee’s work habits if necessary. Indeed, maintaining poor posture all day isn’t without repercussions.

Carpal tunnel syndrome usually results from poor posture and/or workplace installations, as well as from working positions that are held for too long or that are overly-stimulated. Chiropractors can work on the area located at the nape of the neck where the median nerve (responsible for carpal tunnel) originates from. Chiropractic also relieves the pressure on the nerve throughout its journey to the carpal tunnel. Therefore work on the shoulder, elbow, and wrist may be needed. It is common to recommend exercises to complement the treatment.

Chiropractic helps fight anxiety, depression and burnout thanks to several positive effects. The chiropractor has a body-mind approach and can assess the work to be done from a physical (adjustments, exercises) chemical (nutrition, hydration, supplements) and emotional point of view.

Chiropractic lowers blood pressure, which affects anxiety and depression.

Hypertension is a major public health problem worldwide. It is estimated that in France 30% of adults suffer from this serious disease. A 2007 study from the Journal of Human Hypertension observed hypertensive patients. Half of them had their first cervix adjusted by a chiropractor, the other half received a false adjustment.

The drop in blood pressure was so impressive in patients who actually received a chiropractic adjustment, that the researchers concluded that the chiropractic adjustment “is similar to the combined use of two antihypertensive drugs.” 85% of patients receiving the real adjustment had a significant improvement from the first adjustment!

These surprising results have many implications in everyday life. It is known that heart problems are the leading cause of death, and predispose to the development of other diseases. Improving heart health through chiropractic is a natural solution to reduce health risks in your team.

Chiropractic is a natural health solution. The absence of side effects with chiropractic is a big advantage. The body does not need to filter drug toxicity. The patient feels better and suffers from less drowsiness and fatigue caused by drugs. Chiropractic is therefore interesting as a replacement or supplement to medication, always under medical supervision.

Adjusting the spine releases positive, anti-stress and happy hormones.

Chiropractic monitoring improves quality of sleep in the majority of patients

Chiropractic adjustments relieve tension, stiffness and headaches, making you feel better, less tired, more energized and less stressed

Chiropractic treatment increases relaxation and the feeling of inner peace and serenity.

Chiropractic in the workplace is a safe and effective way to treat and prevent musculoskeletal conditions. It can lower business costs by reducing work-related injuries, paid sick leave and employee absenteeism.


What are musculoskeletal conditions?

According to the World Health Organization, “musculoskeletal conditions are the leading contributor to disability worldwide, with low back pain being the single leading cause of disability globally”

They comprise diagnoses affecting the body’s movement including the muscles, bones, joints and associated tissues such as tendons and ligaments. Common musculoskeletal conditions include: tendonitis, muscle strains, carpal tunnel syndrome, ruptured & herniated discs and more.


How do musculoskeletal conditions impact companies?

In France, musculoskeletal disorders represent 87% of professional sicknesses and back pain amounts to 20% of work-related injuries. In 2017, these disorders cost companies almost 2 Billion euros through their contributions to accidents at work and occupational sicknesses (AT/MP) [Source].

Not only that musculoskeletal disorders account for 30% of all sick leaves, with an average of 2 month paid leave for back pain.

Musculoskeletal disorders are developed through exposure to risk factors. At work, there are three main ergonomic risk factors:
