Most people are unaware that Chiropractic care many times costs far less than going to see their MD or GP. Chiropractic care provides a safe, natural, healthy alternative to medications that often can damage your internal organs or that create new problems. Chiropractic care, like that offered by “Monroe Chiropractic and Massage”, is a cost-effective way to help get rid of unneeded doctor visits and harmful medications.
Many people needlessly suffer from aches and pains but don’t think they can do anything about them. Others rely on their MD to prescribe medications that many times simply mask the problem, often causing side effects that create another problem! Does this sound like you?
Research shows that many patients who received chiropractic care for acute back or neck pain are happier with the results and have less medical recidivism than treatment that is based on medicating opposed to resolving the issue. The difference? Chiropractic care works with your body in a natural way and seeks to bring your body into a unified function, instead of relying on prescription medications that often do as much harm as they do good.
When it comes to chronic care, patients who receive regular monthly spinal adjustments are often able to stop taking pain medication altogether. Many patients also report benefits such as being able to focus better thus providing improved cognitive ability, lower blood pressure, improved breathing for asthma patients to mention just a few.
Many Insurance companies now prefer patients seek chiropractic care before medical care. In a study performed by financial researchers at Blue Cross & Blue Shield found that "Paid costs for episodes of care initiated with a DC were almost 40% less than episodes initiated with an MD. Even after risk adjusting each patient's costs, we found that episodes of care initiated with a DC were 20% less expensive than episodes initiated with an MD." If BCBS thinks chiropractic is affordable and works, why not give it a try? Even without insurance, chiropractic care is often less than half the cost of a MD visit. Why not call and set up an appointment with a Doctor of chiropractic medicine today and start living life to the fullest!!!
