12 Reasons Why You Should Choose Chiropractic Care for Back Pain – Part 2

February 16, 2014

Let’s continue on with our four-part series, which will reveal the top reasons why chiropractic care is the best choice for back pain. In providing you with this information, we hope to help you make the best choice for your health care needs.


  1. Chiropractic Can Prevent Recurrence of Back Pain – Using the safe and holistic approach to address back pain issues, chiropractic has been proven to be effective in the prevention of recurring back pain. A 2011 study of 900 patients revealed that those who had undergone chiropractic care for work injuries were not reliant on pain medications and were able to resume their daily routines before those who received traditional medical treatment.
  2. Lower Cost – Not only is chiropractic generally more effective, it is also significantly less expensive than traditional medical care. A study of the medical expenses paid by 12,000 people with spine conditions was performed and data showed an average annual savings of nearly $800 for those who chose chiropractic care over medical. Considering chiropractic can also prevent recurring back pain, these savings can be quite substantial.
  3. Avoid Potentially Harmful Epidurals – Herniated discs and other causes of low back pain are often treated with epidural steroid shots. These can be accompanied by side effects such as dizziness, weakness of the spinal muscles and bones and headaches. In a survey of 102 patients with herniated discs, chiropractic patients consistently reported better pain relief after treatment and continued relief compared to those who had epidural shots. Another benefit is that chiropractic care is less expensive than steroid injections.
