Let's face it...cost is an important factor when considering our health care options. We want quality care that works without racking up unnecessary medical bills.  More and more, people are considering the benefits of chiropractic care when they evaluate their health care options. A growing body of research shows that chiropractic is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical treatments.

Lower Medical Costs with Chiropractic

In a recent study, researchers analyzed the medical spending of over 12,000 adults with spine conditions. They discovered that people who use alternative therapies have lower annual health-care costs compared to patients receiving traditional treatments. Chiropractic care contributed significantly to reduced costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use.

Earlier research found that chiropractic prevented recurring disability in patients with back pain, which could help to minimize medical spending. Studies have also suggested that chiropractic cuts costs for patients by helping them avoid unnecessary procedures, tests, surgeries and expensive drugs. Instead, chiropractors work to harness the body's innate healing capabilities with a combination of  natural, effective modalities.
