Without proper care, advice and/or treatment people with back pain or repetitive strain injury may have to leave their jobs and even with milder symptoms they may be in constant pain or have to take large numbers of days off every year - or work inefficiently.

Not providing an adequate service for the workforce may prove false economy.

Chiropractors have worked with numerous companies to help reduce sickness absence costs and costs due to lost productivity. They have shown and documented, that employees are often able to remain at work, or return to work within six to eight chiropractic treatments. There is good evidence to suggest that manipulation is better than placebo and physical modalities for acute low back pain and strong evidence that manipulation works better than placebo, analgesics and GPs for chronic low back pain. Chiropractic treatment has been shown to produce measurable improvements in levels of pain, disability and fear avoidance behaviour.
