Chiropractic Care Reduces Healthcare Spending
Let's face it: Cost is a significant factor when we are researching our health care options. We want quality care that works without racking up needless health-care bills. At Weary Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Weary understands your worries. We have many patients in Prescott, AZ who are on a budget and come to our practice because they get results and save money on their healthcare expenditures.
An increasing body of research reveals that chiropractic care is both effective and less costly than more invasive medical treatments.
In a recent report, researchers assessed the medical expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They found that patients who used alternative therapies have reduced annual health-related expenses when compared to patients receiving traditional treatments.
Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to lowered costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use. Earlier reports have found that chiropractic care prevented persistent disability in patients with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.
Research has also found that chiropractic cuts spending for patients by helping them avoid unnecessary procedures, exams, surgeries, and expensive medications.
Instead, chiropractors work to take advantage of the body's inherent healing capabilities with a variety of natural, successful modalities.
