Preventative Chiropractic Care Program
Concordia provides a preventative chiropractic care program for all benefit eligible employees as part of the college’s worker’s compensation program. Data has shown that back-related injuries are the most frequent type of workers’ compensation injury, and carpal tunnel-related injuries are the most costly type of workers’ compensation injury. A preventative chiropractic care program is beneficial for both kinds of injuries.
This program is voluntary for all benefit eligible college employees and is for preventative care only. This program is separate from workers’ compensation itself, which covers work-related injuries, and separate from the college’s health insurance plan, which covers personal injury and illness. This program will not cover treatment of injuries occurring on-the-job or off the job.

Employees participating in the program must be treated by one of these service providers. Employees should reference the Concordia College preventative chiropractic care program when being treated by one of the designated providers. Concordia College will be billed for these services, so employees will not need to pay for those services.
Initial Consultation: Employees will be allowed one consultation visit upon inception of the program or their participation in the program. The purpose of the initial consultation is to give the designated service provider the opportunity to learn about the employee’s medical history and determine what, if any, preventative chiropractic care is appropriate.
Preventative Treatments: Each employee participating in the preventative care program may elect to use a maximum of 12 treatments during a fiscal year. Treatments are to be scheduled on an as-needed basis at the discretion of the employee and the service provider.
X-Rays: One set of X-rays per year will be allowed at the discretion of the designated service provider. It is not anticipated that X-rays will be necessary in each case, but this option is included should it be deemed necessary by the service provider.
