We provide a variety of chiropractic methods to treat your whole body so you can achieve both immediate and lasting back pain relief.
Don’t Become Another Back Pain Statistic
The allopathic way of addressing back pain is expensive, costs ranging from $50 billion to $200 billion a year. The numbers also include lost wages and employers shelling out money for missed days. Patients themselves shell out an estimated $6,000 annually on medical bills. The good news is data also shows that seeing a chiropractor for back pain is effective and significantly more affordable.
This 2018 six week study evaluated the impact of chiropractic as part of a comprehensive treatment for low back pain. Patients who receive chiropractic care for back pain reported:
- Better pain levels
- Improved disability levels
- Being able to stay away from opioids
- Better physical function
This study published earlier this year gathered data on factors leading to developing chronic back pain after suffering a short episode of back pain. When chiropractors were the first choice of treatment, it translated into the smallest chance of needing surgery. Chiropractic also turned out to be more cost effective and patients rarely felt a need for opioids to manage pain.
And when chiropractic care was paired with a medical doctor, healthcare costs remained reasonable. Patients also reported faster and better lasting pain relief.
