There's a saying that goes an ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure. From a financial stand point, nothing could be more true when it comes to using chiropractic care.
A 2005 study published in JMPT found "for low back and neck pain, the inclusion of chiropractic benefits resulted in a reduction in the rates of surgery, advanced imaging, inpatient care, and x-rays." That means less unnecessary testing, less hospitalization and fewer operations when chiropractic care is made available. The scales clearly tip in our favor.
When you keep your nerve system clear and give your body a chance to heal itself, you end up saving tons of time, money and aggravation. Chiropractors know it. Our patients know it. We're just waiting for the rest of the world to catch on.
