A growing body of research reveals that chiropractic is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical procedures.
In a recent paper, researchers assessed the healthcare spending of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They found that people who used alternative therapies have reduced annual health-care expenses compared to people receiving traditional treatments.
Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to reduced costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy used.
Previous reports have revealed that chiropractic care prevented persistent disability in people with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.
Research studies have also found that chiropractic lowers costs for patients by helping them eliminate risky treatments, exams, surgeries, and expensive drugs.
Alternatively, doctors of chiropractic work to harness the body's innate healing abilities with a variety of natural, successful modalities.
