Chiropractic Care Reduces Medical Spending

Let's be honest: price is a significant consideration when we're deciding on our health care options. We want quality care that works without racking up needless medical bills. At First Choice Chiropractic & Rehabilitation, we understand your worries. We have many patients in Beaverton, OR who are on a budget and visit our office because they get results and save money on their health care costs.

A growing body of research shows that chiropractic care is both effective and less expensive than more invasive medical treatments.

In a recent report, researchers assessed the medical expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They found that patients who used alternative therapies have lower annual health-related expenses when compared to patients receiving traditional treatments.

Chiropractic care contributed dramatically to lowered costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use.

Previous reports have revealed that chiropractic prevented recurring disability in patients with back pain which could help to minimize health-related spending.

Studies have also found that chiropractic reduces costs for patients by helping them eliminate risky procedures, tests, surgeries, and expensive medications.

Instead, chiropractors work to harness the body's inherent healing capabilities with a variety of non-invasive, successful modalities.
