National Chiropractic Health Month: Conservative Care First

Did you know that October is National Chiropractic Health Month?

The theme for this month, put on by the American Chiropractic Association is “Conservative Care First!”  A conservative approach to pain management and health enhancement is both sensible and effective.

As they explain, “for years, many patients would find relief through conservative forms of care such as chiropractic services only after unsuccessfully trying a range of other, more complex and riskier treatments. Today, that approach has been reversed, with more medical research and guidelines supporting the idea that patients should exhaust conservative approaches to pain management before moving on to other options.”

Unfortunately for those who started with riskier treatments, they may have experienced adverse side effects from their first choice in treatments – ranging from the use of steroids, pain medication, and painful, or sometimes repeat surgeries.

An interesting statistic about the power of chiropractic care…

Those who see a chiropractor have

  • 60.2% less hospital admissions
  • 59% less days in a hospital
  • 62% less outpatient surgeries
  • 85% less pharmaceutical costs

compared to those who do not visit a chiropractor!
