spine pain help from Georgetown chiropractorsYour friends and neighbors are discussing lowering healthcare costs. You want to pay a lower price tag for your healthcare. Insurers want to pay less for healthcare. The future is going to bank on the proof-based conclusions chronicled in studies like this one to assist in reducing healthcare costs.

We chiropractors have been proven to present peerless spinal pain, back pain, neck painleg pain and arm pain relief at a small bit of the expense of surgical and other medical approaches. Truth be told, costs were 40% less for back pain care beginning with a chiropractor than with a medical doctor. (1) The recorded costs are $23,562 for medical care claims and only $2597 for chiropractic care claims. (2)

We chiropractors are thought of as part of complementary alternative medicine (CAM). In spine care, though, we do provide 94% of all spinal manipulation(3,4) So, are we chiropractors really CAM? Interesting question.

But anyway, Georgetown chiropractic care at Dr. Butwell reduces pain capably and at an acceptable cost. Take a look over this study of over 12,000 neck and back pain patients (5):

  1. Complementary alternative medicine care is better and less expensive than non-complementary alternative medicine care.
  2. CAM users report better health, education and less co-morbidity than non-CAM users.
  3. CAM users’ annual spine costs are $424 less than non-CAM users.
  4. CAM users’ overall annual healthcare costs are $796 less than non-CAM users.
  5. CAM users did not add to the overall medical spending.
