The Cost-effectiveness of Chiropractic Care
Have you ever considered seeing a chiropractor?
There are tons of reasons why a person would answer “YES!” From overall general health to specific aches and pains, to an injury, millions of folks turn to chiropractors for pain relief, increased movement and strength, and overall healing.
For some individuals, the price tag seems to hinder their decision to seek chiropractic treatment. Lack of insurance coverage, or a recommended ongoing treatment regimen (because it usually takes more than one treatment) are two of the most common reasons patients deem it too expensive.
When looking at the big picture, however, patients see and understand the cost of NOT pursuing the care of a chiropractor, and these costs end up being more than simply dollars.
Let’s look at three reasons an individual would visit a chiropractor, and the cost effective savings each scenario provides.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.
Choosing to see a Chiropractor in Overland Park to promote and sustain good health is a forward thinking idea that is increasingly attractive to those striving to stay younger, longer. Chiropractic care promotes healing through the body as a whole. Over 80% of our decade old practice is considered “wellness care.”
Gentle chiropractic treatments help increase mobility and maximize the entire body’s performance. In addition, they offer a wide variety of health benefits! Avoiding these health issues and injuries potentially save tens of thousands of dollars in future doctor bills!
Regular visits to a gentle Chiropractor in Overland Park enable a person to stay healthy and enjoy a more active life with a healthy back, bones, and joints.
Oops! I strained it again!
Millions of unfortunate souls injure their bodies in a variety of mishaps. From sports injuries to car accidents, to erroneously thinking you really can walk in those four and a half inch heels (you know you who are – ha!), our backs, ankles, and hips take a beating.
Choosing gentle chiropractic care for an injury is a smart 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. (Cool, huh?!)
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. It also helps people stay married, because most individuals are cranky when they are in pain. (Ok, I made that last point up).
Chronic pain conditions.
Many types of pain conditions are ongoing, with no definitive cure. These can be devastating to a person’s quality of life. Daily pain, and loss of strength and mobility are difficult to manage, and sometimes medicine is the chosen option. Numerous times, chiropractic care can work wonders in these situations.
A chiropractor who is experienced in treating the specific type of pain condition can build a chiropractic treatment plan to help manage the symptoms of the condition, including drug-free (or limited drug) pain management. With specific and gentle 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. In the best situation, his or her quality of life is positively affected, and relapses are avoided. (yay!)
Gentle Chiropractic care is a productive 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 minimal when measured against the rewards of increased mobility, decreased pain, and a greater quality of life.
