Chiropractic care decreases medical costs

Chiropractic care is often used as wellness and/or preventative care and  when you maintain health you’re not sick as often. A lot of people only see their medical doctors if there is a problem or if they are sick, but what if we could prevent some of these problems from arising in the first place with wellness care? What if your primary care physician was a Chiropractor? 

In an Independent Practice Association (IPA) permitted patients to select a doctor of chiropractic as their primary care physician, clinical and cost utilization based on 70,274 member-months over a seven-year period demonstrated decreases of 60.2 percent in hospital admissions, 59 percent hospital days, 62 percent outpatient surgeries and procedures, and 85 percent pharmaceutical costs when compared with conventional medicine. These were across the board savings, not merely back and neck cases.

Take a moment to check out the research 🙂
