Chiropractic care can not only save you money, but time!

A recent issue of the Journal of  Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics has shown that seeing a Chiropractic Physician  for spinal complaints can lead to faster and better relief, as compare to traditional medical care.   Read more. 

Additionally, an article published last year in Medical Care showed that people who see a doctor of chiropractic for their neck and back pain do not have higher health care costs than those who don’t. In fact, it was found that adjusted annual medical costs for chiropractic patients was $424 lower for spine related costs, and $796 lower for total health care costs, when compared to those who did not visit a doctor of chiropractic. The results of this  study are particularly significant, as it included more than 12,000 people with neck and back pain, using data from the Medical Expenditure  Panel Survey (MEPS).
