Carrboro/Chapel Hill, North Carolina Chiropractor
Between the cost of medical care and prescription pain medication, and the uncertain future of healthcare in the United States, it is no wonder people are looking for alternative methods to relieve pain. The field of chiropractic care is growing at a rapid rate because people want a drug-free, affordable option for treating temporary and chronic pain.
The average visit to the doctor costs anywhere from $100 to $300 out of pocket, depending on your insurance coverage, if you have any. Too often, the solution to your complaint is pain medication, which takes another chunk of money from your wallet. When all is said and done, paying $1000 or more to relieve pain is considered “getting off lucky.” There is another option.
Chiropractic Care is Affordable
Chiropractic visits typically costs less than $100. First-time consultations are often free, which means that the doctor has a reasonable idea if yours might be a chiropractic problem and some possible treatment options without paying a dime. A chiropractor’s goal is to end the pain by finding and fixing the underlying issue, as opposed to just numbing the pain and never fixing a thing. Instead of committing to a life-time of expensive medication, the problem is actually fixed. Even if this requires several visits, the cost is still reasonable and there is an end in sight.
Recent research has examined the overall cost of chiropractic care versus allopathic medicine and other natural alternatives. Recent reviews of treatments that included chiropractic care were found to be more cost-effective than visits to general practitioners or physical therapists. Furthermore, the costs associated with buying medication to treat the pain decreased by 85% for some patients.
There is no reason why you need to suffer through pain because it is too expensive to alleviate. The economy has many people in a tight situation right now, but this does not mean you need to live with pain.
