Cost Effective Health Care
Cost effective health care in the form of chiropractic. Chiropractic is not sick insurance, life insurance, or disability insurance. Chiropractic care is health care! Health care is exactly in the words, you are wanting to maintain your health. Health does not come in the form of pills or surgery. Health care comes in the form of allowing your body to be at its peak potential! In comparison with other forms of care: “Reduced odds of surgery were observed for…those whose first provider was a chiropractor. 42.7% of workers [with back injuries] who first saw a surgeon had surgery, in contrast to only 1.5% of those who saw a chiropractor.”-Keeney et al (2012), Spine. Seems like that is cost effective!
“Low back pain initiated with a doctor of chiropractic (DC) saves 40 percent on health care costs when compared with care initiated through a medical doctor (MD), according to a study that analyzed data from 85,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield (BCBS) beneficiaries in Tennessee over a two-year span,” –Liliedahl et al (2010), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics. The concept of health care is to REMAIN HEALTHY. Your greatest asset hands down, that everyone has is the ability to alter your health. “Chiropractic is the largest, most regulated, and best recognized of the complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) professions. CAM patient surveys show that chiropractors are used more often than any other alternative provider group and patient satisfaction with chiropractic care is very high,”-Meeker, Haldeman (2002), Annals of Internal Medicine. Health care without restrictions and without medication, sounds like it makes sense. Have your nerves checked by a chiropractor.
