Chiropractic Care Program Fills Workers’ Comp Void

In the workers' compensation marketplace, chiropractic care has been tolerated but not well regarded. This popular physical medicine treatment option often suffers from the stigma that "chiropractors never resolve claims, rarely file timely reports, and always recommend ongoing treatment," according to Hope Owen, workers compensation manager for Landmark Healthcare, Inc. (Sacramento, Calif.), a managed care company that targets group health, workers' compensation and Medicare populations for alternative health therapies.
