Chiropractors are Cost Effective, According to Research. As insurance rates soar out of control, chiropractors became easy prey. Why? Because they are private entities in a corporate driven health care system. Just what are these “experts” saying? They state that chiropractic is expensive, ineffective and downright dangerous. However, research shows just the opposite. In fact, chiropractors are clinically effective, safe and cost effective.

Chiropractors are Cost Effective, according to research. In fact, according to Spine Journal, spinal adjustments combined with medical care show better results than medical care alone. (Goertz et al. (2013), Spine). Additionally, the British Medical Journal published research showing that chiropractic care resulted in faster and better improvement than physical therapy or medical care. The same journal also showed that the costs were about one third of physical therapy or traditional medical treatment. (Korthals-de Bos et al (2003), British Medical Journal)
In yet another journal article, chiropractic care showed a 94% improvement compared to 69% in medical care or physical therapy. (Schneider et al (2015), Spine). Additionally, another article from Spine Journal reported a 42.7% reduction in the need for surgery. So, what does that mean? It means for surgical candidates who saw a chiropractor first, less than 60% needed surgery. (Keeney et al (2012), Spine). In this case, our care reduced costs. After all, surgery is quite expensive.
Lastly, patients under chiropractic care showed better improvements in pain, function and patient satisfaction. This study included both acute injuries and people who suffered from chronic pain. (Haas et al (2005), Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics).
So, it turns out chiropractors are cost effective after all. In fact, we save money.
Why Don’t More Doctors use Us?
So, why don’t more doctors recommend chiropractic care? After all, chiropractors are cost effective. You have to remember that these days, medical doctors don’t work in private practice. Instead, they work for hospitals that are essentially corporate conglomerates. As a result, hospitals train them to keep business within their corporation. So, if you suggest chiropractic, your medical doctor will likely send you to physical therapy. In fact, they pretty much ignore your suggestion.
Why? You see, the hospital employs physical therapists as part of their staff. Sadly, they don’t employ chiropractors. So when your M.D. performs the old bait and switch, they have their employer’s best interests in mind.
