Chiropractic Care Curbs Medical Expenses

Let's be honest: cost is a significant factor when we're researching our health care options. We want excellent care that works without racking up unnecessary health-care bills. At Skon Chiropractic Clinic, we understand your concerns. We have many patients Saint Paul, MN who are on a budget and come to our office because they get results and save money on their healthcare expenditures. A growing body of research shows that chiropractic is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical treatments.

 

In a recent report, researchers assessed the medical spending of over 12,000 adults with spine conditions. They found that patients who used alternative therapies have reduced annual health-care costs 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 revealed that chiropractic prevented recurring disability in people with back pain which could help to minimize health-related spending.

Research studies have also suggested that chiropractic reduces spending for patients by helping them reduce risky treatments, exams, surgeries, and costly medications. Alternatively, doctors of chiropractic work to take advantage of the body's innate healing capabilities with a combination of natural, effective modalities.
