I recently read a study that demonstrated healthcare impact for patients “whose primary care physicians (PCPs) were exclusively doctors of chiropractic.” This study evaluated the clinical and cost utilization of “70,274 member-months over a 7-year period.” When compared with those patients with conventional medical care, these results were found:
- 85% decrease in pharmaceutical costs
- 60% decrease in hospital admission
- 59% decrease in days spent in the hospital
- 62% decrease in outpatient surgery.
Protecting your NeuroStructural foundation is an essential component to long term health and well-being that offers a reduction in the need for more invasive procedures.
