Let's be honest: price is a significant factor when we're researching our health care options. We want excellent care that works without racking up unnecessary health-care bills. At Ball Chiropractic Center, we understand your concerns. We have many patients Federal Way, WA who are on a budget and visit our practice because they get results and save money on their healthcare expenditures.

An increasing body of research reveals that chiropractic is both effective and less costly than more invasive medical procedures.

In a recent study, researchers investigated the medical expenses of over 12,000 people with spine conditions. They observed that people who used alternative therapies have lower annual health-related expenses compared to patients receiving traditional treatments.

 

Chiropractic care contributed significantly to reduced costs since chiropractic accounted for 75% of alternative therapy use.

Previous reports have found that chiropractic prevented persistent disability in patients with back pain which could help to reduce medical spending.

Studies have also suggested that chiropractic cuts spending for patients by helping them eliminate risky treatments, exams, surgeries, and expensive drugs.

Alternatively, chiropractors work to take advantage of the body's innate healing capabilities with a variety of natural, successful techniques.
