Just like there are significant benefits to long term nutrition or exercise, this case study about the long term benefits of chiropractic care clearly demonstrates a staggering amount of savings of health and money. Imagine decreasing your likelihood of being admitted to the hospital by 60%. That’s only one of the benefits declared by a massive seven year, 70,000 member-month study of chiropractic care vs. an HMO in the same area and timeline with no discrimination to age, sex, or disease. Here are the results.
“Clinical and cost utilization based on 70,274 member-months over a 7-year period demonstrated decreases of 60.2% in-hospital admissions, 59.0% less hospital days, 62.0% less outpatient surgeries and procedures, and 85% less pharmaceutical costs when compared with conventional medicine IPA performance for the same health maintenance organization product in the same geography and time frame.”
The source of health in the body is a nerve impulse flowing from the brain stem to every part of the body. The nerve impulse flows over the nerves, so any damage to the nerves by a chiropractic condition called subluxation, a reduced nerve impulse to the organs decreases their function. If this goes on long enough the body will present with a pathology. By taking the pressure off the nerves, the mental impulse is restored to the body thereby allowing normal function and health. It’s as simple as that.
The spine is the source of protection and possibly the source of damage in the case of a subluxation. Changes in spinal structure can affect function. A chiropractor makes sure the spine is protecting the nerves instead of damaging them. When the subluxation is corrected, structure can change. When structure changes, function changes.
Here is a 2.5 year before and after xray of a 60 year old female who presented to the office with significant symptoms. She only came in monthly. During that period, there were significant changes with the structure of her spine. Pictures are below.
Significant changes in cervical curve, posteriority in the low lumbar, and plumb line.
Significant changes in cervical curve and weight bearing.
