Pre-employment Physicals at North Lamar Chiropractic
More companies than ever are requiring prospective employees to undergo pre-employment physicals as standard procedure. This is particularly true in work disciplines that require physical exertion, such as industrial and agricultural jobs. Also known as physical disposition capacity assessments, these tests help employers match ideal candidates to jobs that best suit their physical capabilities.
The World Health Organization recommends pre-employment physicals for situations in which employees are required to have specific levels of physical endurance in order to perform a job. For instance, a person with a lower back problem would not be suitable for a position that involves stooping down to pick up heavy objects but may be well-suited for an alternative position.
Pre-employment physicals are also often required when a work environment has hazardous elements when the safety of a worker or other workers is at risk during the course of performing a job, or as required by law. In these cases, the pre-employment physical exam can help prevent accidents by assuring that the person hired for the job is capable of performing his or her duties in these types of situations.
Chiropractic services for pre-employment physicals
Pre-employment physicals that are performed by doctors of chiropractic medicine are just as thorough as those performed by traditional medical doctors. However, chiropractic medicine is a less-evasive, more natural alternative.
