Chiropractic Care Reduces Health Care Costs

Chiropractic Care Reduces Health Care Costs

It’s important to take into consideration the cost of medical care when seeking treatment.  Medical costs can add-up quickly—which is why you should consider if you are getting the best treatment for your money.  Evidence suggests that chiropractic care provides results and is cost-effective.

Reports show that chiropractic care offers patients with a cheaper alternative to medical treatment.  Health insurance companies are increasingly including chiropractic care as a covered benefit.  According to the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), chiropractic care is also a tax-deductible medical expense.  Researchers analyzed the medical spending of over 12,000 adults with spine conditions and discovered: “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.”

Chiropractic care can also save you from spending money at the pharmacy.  You can avoid the cost of pain relievers by seeking a long-lasting treatment method.  A chiropractic physician will focus on fixing the problem/injury rather than prescribing medication to temporarily relieve you of pain.  For example, prescription medication to relieve back or neck pain can be very expensive and even addictive.  By seeing a chiropractic physician you can avoid the costs as well as the risks associated with pain medication.  Chiropractic care also avoids the costs associated with surgeries and procedures.
