As a kid I loved baseball. I would go out every day and practice and I enjoyed every moment on the baseball field. That is, until I was hit in the mouth with a baseball. my 2 front teeth nearly fell out but after careful bracing the teeth were saved. I was pretty thankful for that, since they were adult teeth. I never noticed a problem until I was 18 and needing root canals and major dental work. That was taken care of, and as an adult I’ve had many issues with my teeth. Right now my 2 front teeth have probably cost me and my family over $10, 000.
Healthcare is not cheap and nowadays we are looking to make our financial lives easier, one area that makes us cringe is the cost of healthcare. Spinal surgery can cost us upwards of $140, 000 to $200, 000. Is there any other solution to the health care crisis.
There have been numerous studies by insurance companies regarding the cost effectiveness of chiropractic care to medical care and the results are promising. Those people under chiropractic care showed a significant decrease in health care costs than those initially seeking medical care.
When I think about a dental procedure I had about 2 years ago. I realized that the price to care for an entire family in our office for a year of corrective care, cost less than I was charged to have dental work on one tooth!!
Some other promising statistics. When a person had a Chiropractor as their Primary care doctor, they experienced:
- 85% less Pharmaceutical costs
- 62% fewer outpatient visits
- 60% fewer hospitalizations
- 59% fewer days in the hospital.
I think that says enough. If you want your family to achieve true health naturally, make chiropractic care your family’s investment. We are thankful for the opportunity to help thousands of families and children to achieve great health through chiropractic care. If you or someone you know needs chiropractic care, please contact our office at 520-572-2596. Have a healthy week.
