Many people think that chiropractic care is just for treating back pain. But it treats so much more! From overall general health to specific aches and pains, to an injury, to headaches, insomnia, and lack of flexibility or energy, millions of folks turn to chiropractors for pain relief, increased movement and strength, and overall healing.

For some individuals, the price tag can hinder their decision to seek chiropractic treatment. Lack of insurance coverage, or a recommended ongoing treatment regimen are two of the most common reasons patients decide chiropractic care is too expensive.

When looking at the big picture, however, patients begin to see and understand the cost of NOT pursuing the care of a chiropractor, and these costs end up being more than simply dollars.

Getting Ahead of the Issues

Choosing to see a chiropractor to promote and sustain good health is a forward thinking idea that is being embraced by people striving to stay younger, longer. Chiropractic care promotes healing through the body as a whole.

Spinal adjustments help increase mobility and maximize the entire body’s performance. In addition, they offer a wide variety of health benefits, from decreasing blood pressure to lowering the chance of headaches. Avoiding these health issues before they start, or minimizing them at the beginning, potentially save tens of thousands of dollars in future doctor bills.

Regular visits to a professional chiropractor enable a person to stay healthy and enjoy a more active life with a healthy back, bones, and joints, and nervous system.

Oops! I hurt myself again!

Millions of people injure their bodies in a variety of ways. From sports injuries to car accidents, to wearing high heels, our backs, ankles, and hips take the brunt.

Choosing chiropractic care for an injury is a wise decision. In many cases, a chiropractor is able to promote healing, decrease a patient’s dependence on drugs for pain management, and minimize the chance of a recurrence.

Chiropractic care treats the body as a whole, so a patient’s visits help strengthen other parts of the surrounding area of the body, not just the injured area. Chiropractic care is cost effective for treating injuries as it decreases money spent on costly medicine and reduces time off work.

Chronic medical conditions.

Many types of medical conditions are ongoing, with no definitive cure. These can be harmful to a person’s quality of life. Daily pain and loss of strength and mobility are difficult to deal with, and sometimes medicine is the chosen option, which have many side effects. Much of the time, chiropractic care can work wonders instead of medication, and has no side effects.

A chiropractor who is experienced in treating the specific type of medical condition can build a treatment plan to help manage the symptoms of the condition, including drug-free pain management. With adjustments to the afflicted area, along with an at-home routine of recommended exercise, the patient frequently experiences a reduction in pain and symptoms, and an increase in mobility.

Chiropractic care is a productive, cost-effective treatment for a variety of injuries and medical conditions, as well as a preventive therapy to maintain and prolong wellness. The up-front cost is small when measured against the rewards of increased mobility, decreased pain, and a greater quality of life.
