Complementary Alternative Medicine like McHenry Chiropractic for Spine Pain Is Better and Less Expensive

spine pain help from McHenry chiropractorsThe whole town is talking about reducing healthcare costs. You want to pay less for your healthcare. Insurers want to pay less for healthcare. The future is going to rely on the evidence-based effects documented in studies like this one to help reduce healthcare costs.

We chiropractors have been shown to provide top-notch spinal pain, back pain, neck painleg pain and arm pain relief at a fraction of the cost of surgical and other medical approaches. Indeed, costs were 40% less for back pain care started with a chiropractor than with a medical doctor. (1) The documented costs are $23,562 for medical care claims and only $2597 for chiropractic care claims. (2)

We chiropractors are considered to be a part of complementary alternative medicine (CAM). In spine care, though, we do provide 94% of all spinal manipulation(3,4) So, are we chiropractors really CAM? Interesting question.

But anyway, McHenry chiropractic care at Spengel Chiropractic reduces pain efficiently and at a reasonable cost. Check out this study of over 12,000 neck and back pain patients (5):

  1. Complementary alternative medicine care is better and less expensive than non-complementary alternative medicine care.
  2. CAM users report better health, education and less co-morbidity than non-CAM users.
  3. CAM users’ annual spine costs are $424 less than non-CAM users.
  4. CAM users’ overall annual healthcare costs are $796 less than non-CAM users.
  5. CAM users did not add to the overall medical spending.
