New Study Finds Chiropractic Cuts Health Care Costs in Half
A new study analyzing data retrieved from 85,000 Blue Cross Blue Shield beneficiaries found that insurance companies that prevent people with lower back pain from seeing a chiropractor actually pay 40% more for the care those people receive from medical providers.
Lower back pain is a significant public health problem with up to 85 percent of Americans experiencing back pain at some point in their lives. Treating back pain costs about $50 billion annually in health care costs (not including the negative effects on employee productivity) making it one of the top 10 most costly conditions treated in the United States.
