I hope you weren't badly injured, and I'm glad you are able to get the medical treatment that you need.
As far as the pressure you are under at work, an employer can pretty much do whatever they want to do, unless your employment is covered by a contract. Because Arkansas is an "at-will employment" state, if you are not covered by a contract, your employer may fire you for any (legal) reason or no reason. It's tough, I know, but that is the law.
Describe your dilemma to your chiropractor; maybe he/she can help out.
