With rising health care costs in the US, employers and patients are looking for ways to reduce the costs they pay for treatment. A recent study finds that chiropractic is a great way to improve employee health and reduce costs.

The study found that, employees treated by a chiropractor, whether on-site or off-site, had significantly reduced disability scores on tests that evaluated headache, neck pain, and back pain. On average, chiropractic patients had 19% reduction in headache disability scores, a 14.6% reduction in neck pain disability scores, and a 14.5% reduction in back pain disability scores.

The researchers concluded that on-site chiropractic care reduced health-care utilization while improving employee functional status related to musculoskeletal condition.
