New Organization Strives To Build Network of Chiropractors
The corporate environment is extremely stressful, both mentally and physically. Excess durations of sitting and looking at a computer screen can put excessive stress on the neck and back. Combined with the lack of proper hydration, not taking proper breaks to get up and move around, and inadequate diet and exercise habits outside of the workplace, professionals within the corporate environment in the United States are seeing their musculoskeletal health status decline significantly.
Research is showing that the delivery of on-site chiropractic services in a variety of different professional settings can improve the musculoskeletal health and the overall quality of life in the population of employees in that setting. On-site chiropractic care is a relatively new sector within the overarching discipline of chiropractic care. As it is studied more, findings are suggesting that the provision of care within the same environment that work is carried out in is quite helpful. Without the need for transportation and for the opportunity for stiffness to set in, the effectiveness of the on-site chiropractic care could potentially be a solution to a significant amount of musculoskeletal problems in the working community.
A company called Cultivate is recognizing the potential musculoskeletal health benefits of onsite chiropractic care and its business model is centered on forming a network of chiropractic care providers that can address the need for on-site chiropractic care. This is advantageous for both the patients and the service providers. For the patients, there is increased access to a treatment intervention that can make a huge difference in their lives. For the service provider, there is an added element of security and consistency in that they are becoming members of an organization that works to complement the patient population seen at their own practice with other high-need patients.
Beginning on May 7th, 2015, Cultivate will begin offering the certification program that allows chiropractic professionals to join their network of on-site providers and play a role in the development of a truly innovative organization within the chiropractic discipline. Cultivate is extremely unique and could eventually make a big difference in the delivery of chiropractic care and traditional service provision.
