The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress Releases a Crucial Paper About Chiropractic Care's Role in Corporate Wellness
Industry stakeholders often look to leading organizations in their field for guidance, and to understand the state of affairs in the industry from a more global perspective.
Chiropractic care is no different, especially considering that there are conflicting opinions of chiropractic care’s practice in other areas of the medical community. In this discipline of alternative medicine, one of the leading organizations is the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress.
Recently, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has taken another step towards providing the chiropractic field with a wealth of information in terms of current trends and the status of the industry overall. With the release of the paper titled “The Growing Role of Doctors of Chiropractic in Corporate On-Site Clinics,” the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress has given chiropractic professionals tremendous insight regarding one of the most important elements of healthcare in the twenty-first century overall.
In the United States working population, there is growing concern regarding the role of a worker’s health in the ability to perform their job effectively, maintain adequate levels of efficiency, and save costs for their employers. Additionally, many different employers want to provide their employees with a sense of community, and let them know that they are not just expendable workers but are true assets to the company. An onsite wellness clinic is one of the most common ways that employers are doing this.
In the paper, the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress highlights three main advantages of including chiropractic care into an on-site wellness clinic. First, there are financial implications for on-site chiropractors in terms of reducing the amount of cost incurred by the employer for other more extensive healthcare services. Second, there is an increased level of efficiency in the on-site clinic itself so more workers can be seen and care can be streamlined across the entire workforce. Finally, the level of patient satisfaction with their wellness provisions increases with the presence of chiropractic services on-site according to research provided in the paper.
Corporate wellness is high on the list of priorities for all employers and with the release of this status update, all stakeholders have the ability to adjust their perspective and maybe incorporate new strategies.
