I recently posted an article I came across on the popular WebMD site talking about how chiropractic care can reduce the cost of medical expenses from several factors such as decreased need for surgery, and reduced cost of X-ray and MRI. I found this to be an interesting article which cited its information from a research paper by Antonio P. Legorreta, MD et al. which analyzed annual expense on individuals with Low back pain over a 4 year period. Two groups were analyzed, one with and the other without access to chiropractic services.
The study found that Chiropractic care:
- Cut costs of Low back pain treatment by 28%
- Reduced need for hospitalization by 41%
- Reduced need for back surgeries by 32%
- Reduced the cost of medical imaging by 37%
Another interesting note that the article covers is that studies have shown that Chiropractic care has a 95% patient satisfaction rate. Many find satisfaction in care due to the personal, hands on attention they receive with a chiropractor as well as the success they find in reaching their goals in preventing and overcoming health complications.
As a Chiropractor in San Clemente I specialize in helping those who find themselves dissatisfied with their current state of being by getting them to the higher level of health that they desire at a cost they can afford. Many people feel that they have no hope or that they have “Tried Everything” to get themselves to where they want to be. Often my services, and those of physicians like me, have been overlooked. If you find yourself feeling like you are trapped or unable to progress or that you just do not know how to move forward with improving your health, please Contact Us to find out how we can help.
