A growing body of research reveals that chiropractic care is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical treatments.
In a recent report, researchers investigated the healthcare expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They found that people who used alternative therapies have lower annual healthcare 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.
Previous research has found that chiropractic prevented persistent disability in people with back pain which could help to minimize medical spending. One reason why chiropractic is less expensive than standard medical care for back pain is because chiropractors won't prescribe you expensive drugs or surgeries, and won't require you to get imaging diagnostics unless needed. The care they provide is also more affordable because they rely on the body's innate healing capacity, using manual therapies and other natural techniques to initiate this healing process rather than mask symptoms or “fix” a problem with invasive procedures.
