Healthcare isn’t cheap these days, and we’re all looking for ways to reduce our overall expenditure on medical bills. But did you know that maintenance chiropractic care can actually save you money in the long run?
A WebMD study of almost two million patients showed that regular chiropractic adjustments can actually reduce the overall cost of healthcare by almost 30 percent!
The study also found that maintenance chiropractic care is associated with a 30 percent reduction in the number of back surgeries.
These numbers aren’t exactly surprising. It makes sense that when you receive regular, preventive care, you can keep your joints moving fluidly and reduce the incidence of injury. Now you’re less likely to need expensive surgeries, and you’re making fewer claims on your health insurance policy. Over time this can help to keep your premiums low. And, of course, the best benefit of all is that you protect your qualify of life.
We often hear people say, “Chiropractors want you to keep coming back for the rest of your life!” Yes, that’s true. Your dentist also hopes you will return for regular cleanings and check-ups. And your primary care physician, as well as any specialists you see, want to continue monitoring your health with screenings and preventive care. No doctor ever says, “don’t come back until you’re sick and in pain” – at least, we hope not!
With regard to chiropractic care, a little bit of maintenance and prevention will go a long way. That rule applies to your health, as well as reducing your overall expenditures for medical care.
