People are looking for a scientifically based alternative in health care which is affordable. Chiropractic doctors have a simlar education to medical doctors in both the number of hours and type of classes taken. The difference is in the specialized training required for spinal adjusting and other alternative healthcare procedures.
Effeciency of care based on much experience means that we are able to provide value for your healthcare dollar spent. I now have 25 years as a practicing doctor. When you arrive here the goal is to get you well as quickly as possible without unnecessary treatment.
Study after study has demonstrated chiropractic cost efficiency over other types of care for similar conditions.
For example a study published in the professional journal Spine
comparing the effects of spinal manipulation, needle acupuncture, and medication for the management of chronic spinal pain found that patients treated with spinal manipulation experienced the highest rate of recovery. Of the 115 patients who participated in the clinical trial those who underwent spinal manipulation had the highest rate of early recovery, followed by acupuncture, and lastly medication. This is especially notable because the people undergoing spinal manipulation had experienced pain nearly two years longer than the acupuncture group and nearly four years longer than the medication group.
