With the summer season coming to an end, the word “maintenance” seems to be more common then ever. Whether it’s maintaining your automobile, or anything else, it is wiser and more cost effective to maintain your things rather than waiting for them to break down. It is even more important to take care of our bodies so that they can function to the best of their potential. Regular chiropractic care can be a great way to take care of your spine and nervous system.
A research study published in Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics consisting of over 70,000 participants over a 7 year period showed that patients with chiropractor gatekeepers had a 60.2% reduction in hospital admissions, 59.0% decrease in hospital days, 62.0% drop in outpatient surgeries and procedures, and an 85% decrease in pharmaceutical costs when compared with conventional medical gatekeepers within the same geography and during the same time frame. Another study published in Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine evaluating almost 900 cases showed that people receiving regular maintenance chiropractic care had the least chance of re-injury as compared to other therapies. Finally, many other short term case studies have shown significantly favorable results in treatment of anything from headaches to hypertension and muscle spasms to menstrual cramps in people receiving regular chiropractic adjustments versus those who don’t.
