Chiropractic care can be a special experience for everyone who gives it a go– but many people still don’t know how great it can be for all things wellness, and are unwilling to give chiropractic care the shot it deserves. Perhaps they have persistent doubts, or maybe they don’t understand exactly all the greatness chiropractic care can bring.
But did you know that not only is chiropractic care everything you’ve heard and more, it’s also less expensive than other health care therapies, too?
At least that’s what one 2012 study claimed after estimating the “total and spine-specific medical expenditures” of both Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) treatments and non-CAM treatments for spinal issue relief, as offered below:
CAM Is Cheaper– And Longer-Lasting
In all, 12,036 adults suffering from neck and back problems were used in the study, with about 41 percent of them being CAM users. Interestingly, CAM users had better health, “education, and comorbidity compared with non-CAM users.”
When researchers compared annual medical costs between the two groups, it was found that CAM users spent $424 less for “spine-related costs” than non-CAM users, as well as $796 less for total health care costs compared with non-CAM users. This sizable difference between CAM health care user costs and non-CAM health care user costs is largely due to the fact that CAM therapies have lower inpatient expenditures compared with non-CAM treatment options.
With this evidence showing that chiropractic care is not only superior to conventional medical practices, but less expensive, too, don’t you think it’s time you gave chiropractic care a fair shot?
