Research: Chiropractic Saves Money Compared To Traditional Medical Treatment

Friday, August 14th, 2015

I have highlighted several research abstracts here that show, without a doubt, that chiropractic is the treatment of choice for musculoskeletal conditions. Not only does research show that chiropractic is more effective and that our patients have a higher level of satisfaction, research also clearly shows us that chiropractic treatment is more inexpensive when compared to traditional medical treatment protocol.

Here’s a brand new abstract from 2014 that continues to re-iterate this fact.

Why They Did It
The authors wanted to review trial-based evaluations of alternative therapy vs. general practitioner therapies/recommendations in the treatment of musculoskeletal complaints.

How They Did It
The authors undertook a thorough search through the literature in regards to major medical, health, science and health economic electronic databases.

What Did They Find?
25 publications included comparing cost-effectiveness in reducing pain for spinal, shoulder, and ankle complaints.
Manual therapy was more cost-effective than “general practitioner (medical) care by itself or with exercise, spinal stabilization, general practitioner advice to remain active, or brief pain management.”
Chiropractic manipulation was less costly.
Chiropractic manipulation was more effective.

Wrap It Up
In a large number of musculoskeletal conditions, chiropractic is more effective and costs less. Period.

Just another reason to call a chiropractor TODAY

Research and clinical experience shows that, in about 80%-90% of headaches, neck, and back pain, in comparison to the traditional medical model, patients get good or excellent results with Chiropractic. Chiropractic care is safe, more cost-effective, it decreases your chances of having surgery, and it reduces your chances of becoming disabled.  We do this conservatively and non-surgically. In addition, we can do it with minimal time requirements and minimal hassle on the part of the patient. And, if the patient develops a “preventative” mindset going forward from initial recovery, we can likely keep it that way while raising your general, overall level of health!

Please feel free to leave a comment and tell me your thoughts. I’d love to hear what you think.

And….SHARE, SHARE, SHARE!!   We cannot make a difference without your help.
