Neck Pains Find Relief At Orange Chiropractor
Perhaps you’ve heard of chiropractic care and its myriad of proposed health benefits-- but just how beneficial could it be for chronic neck pain discomfort?
A 2012 study looked to answer that exact question. It’s primary objective was to estimate the complete and cervical-specific medical expenditures involved with chiropractic care administered to both complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) patients and non-CAM patients who suffered from spinal problems.
The specific research design used was a complete analysis of the Medical Expenditure Panel Survey from 2002 to 2008, a six-year span.
The participants used involved adults who claimed neck and back problems were a daily struggle; all patients either did or didn’t use CAM services.
Researchers conducted their examination using survey-weighted generalized linear regression for the full evaluation of expenditure differences found between CAM users and their non-CAM counterparts. Controlled variables included patient, socioeconomic, and health attributes.
It was found that 12,036 study respondents with cervical dysfunction were included, which involved 4,306 (35.8 percent) CAM patients. These CAM participants showed substantially better self-reported health and education factors when compared with their non-CAM study peers.
Not only were treatments such as chiropractic care found to be more effective than many conventional, non-CAM treatment methods, but it was lighter on the wallet, too: adjusted annual medical costs for CAM users was $424 lower for spinal-related health costs, as well as $796 lower for overall healthcare costs than those who failed to use CAM therapies. The average expenditure of CAM users was $298 lower for total health costs, primarily because such patients experienced substantially lower inpatient expenditures than patients without CAM treatment.
