For business owners, productivity plays an important role in the work atmosphere and overall business success. The more productive your employees are, the more benefits your company experiences. But sicknesses during the cold winter months often affect the productivity of employees at work. Employees either take sick days because they aren’t feeling well or come to work feeling under the weather to avoid taking sick days. As an employer, you’ve likely thought about how you can decrease the amount of sick days employees take while also increasing productivity in the office. The answer may surprise you… chiropractic care!
Chiropractic Wellness Plans
Chiropractic care is associated with alleviating back and neck pain, but it does so much more than just that. In fact, it has been shown to boost the immune system so that our bodies can fight off sickness quicker or even before illnesses fully manifests themselves. Even the best employees sometimes suffer from the flu, the common cold, or even high blood pressure. These health concerns are linked to spinal misalignments. Misalignments cause nerve interference and disruption that leads to dysfunction and illness. Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar can adjust the spine to remove misalignments and restore proper nerve communication once again. When the body is in proper alignment and is able to fight off illnesses, employees take less time off work and are more focused when they come to work. Chiropractic wellness plans for businesses can be a beneficial option for improving work and productivity among employees. When you consider the cost of health plans and doctor visits, the cost of a chiropractic wellness plan to keep employees at optimal levels of health is well worth the expense, and it will save you money in the long run. Not only do business owners reap the benefits of in-office productivity, but so do employees. When your employees experience the many benefits of chiropractic, they’ll be so thankful that you gave them the opportunity to be under regular chiropractic care.
The Health Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Employees don’t just suffer from physical illnesses. Sometimes employees suffer from other ailments that also affect their work performance. For example, sitting at a desk all day can lead to back and neck pain. Additionally, your employees may also be dealing with frequent headaches, sleeping problems, allergies, anxiety, or a slew of other health concerns. Thankfully, Dr. Ronnie Bolar of Vital Life Chiropractic can alleviate back and neck pain, allergies, mental health concerns, headaches and migraines, and so much more. Gentle, specific spinal adjustments will relieve health issues and help employees better focus on their work tasks rather than their pain. High-stress jobs can lead to health problems, either physical, psychological, or emotional. Stress within the workplace can cause hypertension, depression, or even emotional instability. Many times, employees turn to medication to treat stress-related health concerns. But the cost of medication can add up quickly and it is only a temporary fix.
The expenses for businesses who are paying for health insurance are astronomical. However, Lithia Springs chiropractor Dr. Ronnie Bolar seeks to get to the root of health concerns by correcting spinal misalignments. When proper communication between the brain and the body’s systems are restored, the body will function again at high levels of health. This increases mood and outlook on life, as well as decreases stress and physical ailments. In fact, chiropractic adjustments can increase the function of the endocrine system which affects stress and depression. If several employees have missed work due to physical, emotional, or psychological ailments, Dr. Bolar can help. Consider a workplace wellness plan to increase productivity, decrease sick days, and save your business money in the long run. Contact Dr. Bolar today to find out more information or to set up a health talk to educate yourself and your employees about the science of chiropractic and all of its benefits.
