We often ignore the first signs of a problem, or the first signs of pain. Slight tooth ache? Pop an aspirin. 6 months down the line you call your dentist up in agonizing pain, and it turns out that you require an emergency root canal. It's the same thing with your body, and overall health. Not properly addressing these issues can lead to a more serious problem that will require more expenses. If you are in poor health, your work life and home life will be affected. I should know, as I recently went through the exact scenario this past year. As someone in the chiropractic field, I should have known better!
Prevention and addressing the issue when it first arises is the most cost effective way to deal with your health. Spinal problems, neck, and back pains account for the biggest part of unproductivity in a person's work. If left untreated, it can lead to not being able to perform at all. This drives up the overall cost of not seeking care at the first signs of a problem. As a chiropractic assistant, I have seen it firsthand. We often have patients come in who have had to seriously cut down on their work hours due to pain, or who have stopped working altogether. Much like my tooth pain, it indicates an underlying cause that could've been less expensive if I had caught it sooner.
Chiropractic care plays a very significant role in pain relief and prevention. A study has been conducted that showed more and more patients with neck and back pains have turned to chiropractors to alleviate these health concerns. The reason given is the price. Traditional medical care is more expensive than chiropractic care, especially emergency care. The costs are lower since there is no need to purchase any medical equipment or take prescription drugs. Chiropractic works with your own body's ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care costs approximately 90% less than the price of an operation, which is also a scary and dangerous alternative. Seaman Chiropractic also offers a free consultation, which will give you an opportunity to sit down with Dr. Seaman and discuss your concerns and symptoms. This will enable us to identify if chiropractic would work for your pain. Give our office a call at 773-545-2233 today.
