Chiropractic Lowers Healthcare Spending

Let's be honest: price is a significant aspect when we are researching our health care options. We want high quality care that works without racking up unnecessary health-care bills. At Family Care Chiropractic, we understand your concerns. We have many patients Rockwall, TX who are on a budget and visit our practice because they get results and save money on their healthcare costs. An increasing body of research reveals that chiropractic care is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical procedures.

 

In a recent paper, researchers analyzed the medical expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They found that patients who used alternative therapies have lower annual health-care expenses compared to patients receiving traditional treatments.

Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to lowered costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use. Earlier reports have revealed that chiropractic adjustments prevented persistent disability in patients with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.

Research has also suggested that chiropractic lowers expenditures for patients by helping them reduce risky treatments, exams, surgeries, and costly drugs. Alternatively, chiropractors work to take advantage of the body's innate healing capabilities with a combination of natural, effective modalities.
