IACOHC Celebrates 30 Years of Helping Chiropractors

The International Academy of Chiropractic Occupational Health Consultants (IACOHC), a nonprofit organization founded in 1983, celebrates its 30-year anniversary of helping doctors of chiropractic (DCs) connect with local businesses.

Since its inception, the IACOHC has existed as an autonomous chiropractic entity, driven by its purpose to provide or make available news, education, information, and resources to DCs across America and into other countries for communicating and interacting with employers for the delivery of a broad array of chiropractic services. Its mission is to foster safety and health for the general public through ergonomics, education, optimal clinical management and other measures.

Chiropractic has much to offer employers for worker safety and health, particularly relating to injury prevention and cost containment or reduction, biomechanics and ergonomics, workplace wellness, on-site chiropractic care, and the cost effective and accurate diagnoses and treatment of work-related neuromusculoskeletal injuries.

Within the last decade in particular, chiropractic has assertively and importantly progressed to the forefront for providing federal mandated substances testing services and physical examinations for commercial motor vehicle (CMV) companies and drivers.

Findings of various studies well support chiropractic as the best option for the treatment of many work-related injuries, for lessening the rate of utilization of surgery and/or narcotic pain killers, for expedient return of the (injured) worker to work, and for lowering the rate if disability recurrence.

International in scope and membership, the IACOHC is supported through sales of resources and by membership financial support. For 30 years, the IACOHC has worked supportively on behalf of other like-minded organizations and educational institutions, particularly concerning the occupational health and applied ergonomics diplomate program including classroom and online courses for doctors to meet federal requirements as certified medical examiners; and for delivering federal drug and alcohol testing. Educational courses are sponsored by Northwestern Health Sciences University.

DCs interested in or already involved in outreach to business and industry in their community may contact the IACOHC for information by calling (507) 455-1025 (during normal business hours) or by emailing at .
