Chrysler Goes Holistic to Revolutionize Back Pain Care in the Workplace
Date:2/14/2008

r untreated control groups and their health status was measured at the start, middle and end of the five-month project period.

HAP and HFMG officials believe this innovative group model has great potential for growth throughout Southeast Michigan workforces and beyond. HAP has developed tools to allow for easy implementation, tailoring, and adapting in any worksite setting.

As a result of the successful pilot, Chrysler will continue to offer the program to its employees and will also pilot a separate program using similar complementary and alternative medical techniques to reduce stress. Other southeast Michigan companies have also jumped at the opportunity to bring the program to their employees. The 17,000-employee Henry Ford Health System launched an expanded version of the program in January 2008.

According to the authors of the JAMA study, the U.S. spent nearly $86 billion on treatment of back and neck problems in 2005, an increase of 65 percent from 1997, after adjusting for inflation. Individuals with spine problems spent over $2,500 more on medical care in 2005 than those without spine problems.
