  Title On-site chiropractic care as an employee benefit: A single-location case study [case report]
Journal J Chiropr Med. 2017 Sep;16(3):183-188
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: The purpose of this report is to describe the role of on-site chiropractic care in one corporate environment.

Methods: A part-time chiropractic practice that provides services to a single company on site, 1 day per week, is described. Most care is oriented toward “wellness,” is paid for by the employer, and is limited only by the chiropractor’s few weekly hours of on-site availability. With approval from the company, the authors conducted an absenteeism analysis after obtaining ethics approval and consent from employee–patients who received care between 2012 and 2014. Comparisons of absenteeism rates of the sample were compared with lost worktime rates from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics’ Labor Force Statistics.

Results: Of 40 current employees, 35 used chiropractic services; 17 employee–patients met the inclusion criteria. The lost worktime rates of those using chiropractic services (0.72%, 0.55%, and 0.67%, for 2012, 2013, and 2014, respectively) were lower than corresponding rates from Labor Force Statistics (1.5%, 1.2%, and 1.1%).

Conclusions: Absenteeism for the employee–patients was lower than equivalent national figures in this sample of workers. Though these results may or may not be related to the chiropractic care, these findings prompt further investigation into this relationship.
