Long-term solutions for health, productivity & cost containment

An employer’s health care costs skyrocket when back pain is involved

Employees with low back pain have, on average, 5 other conditions that complicate care. No matter the type of ailment, from lower left back pain or lower right back pain, to a variety of different spinal injuries, employer’s health care costs skyrocket when back pain is the predominate complaint. Presenteeism costs amount to more than two-thirds of the total costs related to low back pain. To make matters worse, estimates claim almost 70% of these employees have the problem recur within 12 months, and to compound this the toll on the employees family becomes an issue that further increases employer healthcare costs in the U.S.

Costs to Your Company

Due to all the suffering from lower back pain, around 40% of those inflicted cannot work. Not only are these people off the job initially, but they continually suffer from bouts of work absenteeism due to their injuries and these are recurrent costs to the employer year after year. Employees unable to work on a consistent basis can be a detriment to your company’s work flow, and your bottom line.
