At Balanced Chiropractic and Rehab, Dr. Pozarnsky understands your worries. We have many patients in Fargo who are on a budget and visit our practice because they get results and save money on their healthcare costs.
A growing amount of research reveals that chiropractic care is both effective and less costly than more invasive medical treatments.
In a recent paper, researchers investigated the medical spending of over 12,000 adults with spine conditions. They found that patients who used alternative therapies have reduced annual health-care expenses compared to patients receiving traditional medical treatments.
Chiropractic care contributed significantly to lowered costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use. Previous research has found that chiropractic care prevented recurring disability in patients with back pain which could help to reduce health-related spending.
Studies have also found that chiropractic lowers expenditures for patients by helping them eliminate risky treatments, exams, surgeries, and expensive drugs.
Alternatively, chiropractors work to take advantage of the body’s inherent healing abilities with a variety of natural, successful modalities.
