Chiropractic Cuts Healthcare Costs

Let's face it: cost is a significant aspect when we're researching our health and fitness options. We want quality care that works without racking up unneeded medical bills. At Select Health and Wellness, Dr. Jon Paul Fritz understands your concerns. We have many patients in Fleming Island, FL who are on a budget and come to our office because they get results and save money on their healthcare costs.

An increasing amount of research reveals that chiropractic care is both effective and less costly than more invasive medical procedures.

In a recent paper, researchers analyzed the healthcare spending of over 12,000 adults with spine conditions. They found that people who used alternative therapies have reduced annual health-care expenses compared to people receiving traditional treatments.

Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to reduced costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use. Previous reports have revealed that chiropractic adjustments prevented persistent disability in people with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.

Studies have also suggested that chiropractic reduces costs for patients by helping them eliminate unnecessary procedures, tests, surgeries, and costly medications.

Alternatively, chiropractors work to take advantage of the body's inherent healing capabilities with a combination of natural, effective modalities.
