An increasing body of research reveals that chiropractic is both effective and less costly than more invasive medical treatments.
In a recent paper, researchers assessed the medical expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They found that people who used alternative therapies have reduced annual health-related costs when compared to people receiving traditional medical treatments. Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to reduced costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use.
Earlier research has revealed that chiropractic adjustments prevented persistent disability in people with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.Research has also suggested that chiropractic lowers expenditures for patients by helping them avoid risky treatments, tests, surgeries, and expensive drugs.
Instead, doctors of chiropractic work to take advantage of the body's innate healing capabilities with a combination of natural, successful techniques.
