Creating a Healthier Environment for Your Organization
November 11, 2020
According to the National Safety Council, work-related injuries cost employers more than $170.8 billion per year. The average cost for a workers’ compensation claim for physical strain injuries is more than $33,000 per claim. Those are some staggering numbers, but there’s something that can be done about them.
On-site chiropractic care has been proven to lower an organization’s healthcare costs, reduce workplace injuries, and even prevent the need for surgeries.
In one organization where chiropractic care has been implemented through WorkSiteRight, the organization has reported outcomes that speak volumes:
• 85% reduction in workers’ compensation costs between 2014-2019
• 65% reduction in recordable work injuries
• As of July, just one workers’ compensation claim in 2020, as opposed to the average of 18-20 they had frequently recorded in the early 2010s
Upfront costs can be a factor when considering healthcare benefits, however implementing an on-site chiropractic clinic requires minimal capital investment. Moreover, it can provide quick benefits, as many organizations have experienced measurable returns and positive outcomes within the first year.
But it’s not just about getting in the door. We truly strive to provide a healthier and more injury-free environment for your organization. For your employees, the benefits of having an on-site chiropractor go far beyond the care that happens in treatment room. Preventive chiropractic care has been proven to reduce reactive healthcare measures — emergency room visits, specialist appointments, and surgeries. Our practitioners often identify potential health risks before they become larger issues and can set an individual on a path to correct those health risks.
Additionally, an on-site practitioner should provide guidance like ergonomic workspace consultation and offer nutritional advice, both of which WorkSiteRight does. A worksite assessment is critical in helping understand your organization, your employees’ working conditions, and how to best support their health goals.
We’re here to help guide you and your employees on a path to health and wellness, starting right in your workplace.
