Occupational Health

Chiropractors have long recognized the importance of the workplace as a source of stress, injury and illness. In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of workers’ compensation injuries, thousands of specially trained chiropractors provide a wide variety of prevention related services for employers and their workers. These include activities such as: ergonomic assessment and work station modification; job rotations; post-offer, pre-placement physical screening examinations; stretching and exercise programs; on-site chiropractic care; spine injury prevention/lifting training; mini-breaks and micro-breaks; health, wellness and safety talks and hands-on instruction; ergonomics of the seated worker; nutrition and lifestyle coaching; weight management; smoke/tobacco cessation; drug testing and alcohol screening and the performance of Department of Transportation (DOT) physical exams for interstate vehicle drivers.

Training in the Occupational Health and Applied Ergonomics specialty has existed in the chiropractic profession since the 1980’s. Doctors of chiropractic become certified through the American Chiropractic Board of Occupational Health (ABCOH).
