Cost less in the long run
Bet you didn’t know that neck and lower back pain are the single most expensive condition to treat in the United States. The Journal of the American Medical Association every 5 years looks at the cost of healthcare. There latest one was in March of 2020 and found that neck and back pain were the most expensive condition to treat followed by diabetes and then heart disease. Other research has recently shown that if you begin care with pain medication that leads to an escalation of care which you do not see with chiropractic care. What is this escalation of care? Well it ends up being more MRI’S , more injections, more surgery, more hospitalizations, opioids etc.
You take less harmful drugs
When you go to the chiropractor for pain management you are much less likely to be prescribed dangerous and not very effective pain medication such as an opioid. Anywhere from 20% to 56% of chiropractic patients do not take these medications for pain. Overall chiropractic is much much safer than taking pain medication.
Prevents back surgery
If you see a chiropractor first for a back injury you have a 1.5% chance of having lower back surgery. If you see a surgeon first for a lower back injury you have a 42.7% chance of surgery.
