Chiropractic Management of work-related injuries is one of the best methods employers have to reduce the cost of work-related injuries. Over the years, many studies have been performed demonstrating the superiority of chiropractic in the management of work-related injuries.

One of the primary sources of lost workdays is low back pain. Chiropractic is clearly the most cost and clinically effective method of managing the costs associated with low back pain. Dr. Kenney's extensive post-doctoral training in the areas of chiropractic rehabilitation, orthopedics, disability evaluation, independent medical examination, and consulting allow him to be provide comprehensive cost-effective health care to your injured workers.

Employers who use post-offer physical examinations are able to assure that the employee they hire are able to safely perform the tasks that will be required of them. By comparing the employee's physical performance and capacity with predefined job functions and tasks the employer can determine the correct job placement of the employee. In addition, by having a set of baseline data, the employer and doctor can compare an injured employee's physical capacity after an injury to determine apportionment of any remaining post-accident disability and the point at which the employee has reached maximum medical improvement.
