An increasing body of research shows that chiropractic care is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical treatments.

In a recent report, researchers analyzed the medical spending of over 12,000 adults with spine conditions. They observed that people who used alternative therapies have reduced annual healthcare costs when compared to people receiving traditional treatments.Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to lowered costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use.

Earlier research has revealed that chiropractic prevented persistent disability in people with back pain that could help to reduce health-related spending. Studies have also suggested that chiropractic reduces costs for patients by helping them reduce unnecessary treatments, exams, surgeries, and costly drugs. Doctors of chiropractic also tap into the body’s inherent capacity to heal itself by utilizing non-invasive, drug-free treatments aimed at supporting the immune system’s natural response to injury.
