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


In a recent paper, researchers assessed the medical expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They discovered that people who used alternative therapies have reduced annual healthcare costs when compared to people receiving traditional medical treatments.

Chiropractic Lowers Medical ExpensesChiropractic care contributed significantly to reduced costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use. Earlier research has revealed that chiropractic prevented persistent disability in people with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.

Research has also found that chiropractic reduces expenditures for patients by helping them reduce unnecessary treatments, tests, surgeries, and costly medications. Instead, doctors of chiropractic work to take advantage of the body's inherent healing abilities with a variety of non-invasive, effective modalities.
