There’s no denying that the cost of healthcare has been going up, and it seems like it will keep going up. It doesn’t have to be that way though. By using regular chiropractic care you can bring down your visits to the hospital and the medications you take. This will save you tons of money over time.
Going to a medical office racks up expensive copays that will quickly burn through your wallet. And it doesn’t end there. Once leave the medical office you’re going straight to the pharmacy to purchase medicine that may be harmful or addictive. By the end of it you owe an outrageous amount of money just because you hurt your back playing tennis. Compare that to a visit to the chiropractor, where the initial exam is frequently free or discounted. Your visit costs around $70 and doesn’t use any harmful medications. Because chiropractors aren’t using medications, you might not find instant relief, but your chiropractor’s goal is to get you out of pain, and then fix the cause of the pain so it doesn’t return.
Chiropractors work under the understanding that health is having 100% nerve function to all the parts of your body. Chemical, physical, and emotional stress affects your organs and nervous system. Chiropractic care treatments focus on getting your entire body back in alignment without the use of possibly harmful medications.
Traditional Medicine Compared to Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM)
Health Economists from John Hopkins University found that the annual cost of chronic pain is as high as $635 Billion per year. Another study found that patients who used a chiropractic care doctor as their primary care physicians, they saw a 60.2% decrease in hospital admissions, 59% less hospital days, 62% less outpatient surgeries, and 85% lower pharmaceutical costs compared to people who used conventional medicine physicians. That’s saves a lot of your money.
The reason chiropractic care is so effective is because chiropractors focus on preventative care and proactive actions. Traditional medicine is strictly reactive. You have to get sick before they can treat you. Chiropractors develop healthcare plans that start from the ground up. Most people think of chiropractors as just back pain doctors but they will help you decide the type of preventative care you need. Your chiropractor can help you find parts of your diet that are hurting your health and provide healthy alternatives. In addition, your chiropractor will give you exercises that you can do to keep your body at peak performance. Between diet, exercise, and alignments your body will be able to protect itself from injury better, and you’ll recover quicker from stressful situations as well.
The most common type of chronic pain a chiropractor can manage is joint pain. Their knowledge of how the body works with itself lets them identify the techniques that bring the most relief.
