Does Chiropractic care improve the quality of life and health for an individual? Does being under Chiropractic care make one’s life and health better?
Heading into the New Year 2016, can we hang our hat on the fact that people under Chiropractic care experience better health outcomes with no negative side effects?
Think about it…this is one of the most important questions that should be asked by any healthcare practitioner seeking to improve the quality and quantity of life for a patient. And I’m not even going to tell you my opinion on the issue because my opinion does not matter. Facts, evidence, science, research, and results are what matter!
These are facts based on data:
**A study published in 2007 compared the health outcomes of two random yet similar groups of people. One group saw a medical doctor as their Primary Care Provider (PCP) while the other group saw a Chiropractor as their PCP. What were the results? Clinical and cost utilization based on 70,274 member-months over a 7-year period demonstrated decreases of 60.2% in-hospital admissions, 59.0% less hospital days, 62.0% less outpatient surgeries and procedures, and 85% less pharmaceutical costs when compared with conventional medicine IPA performance for the same health maintenance organization product in the same geography and time frame.
60.2% less in-hospital admissions
59.0% less hospital days 62.0% less outpatient surgeries and procedures
85% less pharmaceutical costs
These findings are amazing and eye-opening! There are other studies that have analyzed the most important measurements…how the recipients perceive the quality of their care. And it has been revealed over and over again that the quality of life that Chiropractic care helps to promote is unmatched to any other form of healing. Spinal adjustive care for the maximum expression of health is as necessary to families as eating well or getting appropriate movement (exercise)…
It is becoming more widely known that one of the greatest health strategies a family can implore is regular Chiropractic care. This is no longer just an opinion. Chiropractic care is an investment, not a health debt. Investing in Chiropractic care helps you improve the single most important physical asset you have on earth…Your Health!
