Why do we approach chiropractic care the way we do here at New Life Chiropractic?
Over 80 percent of people in our country now experience some level of neck pain, back pain, or headaches. This huge problem in America is due to high levels of stress, high levels of toxicity, very high levels of inactivity, chronic injuries, repetitive stress, poor posture, and so many other things.
I want to read you some statistics about what’s going on with this pain epidemic and the devastation and what it’s costing us financially, personally and in the quality of your life.

What is Chronic Back and Neck Pain Costing Us?
When I looked at the studies, I found that in America alone, chronic pain costs the US healthcare system between $560 to $635 billion dollars annually. That combines healthcare costs to treat the pain, lost productivity from missing days at work and everything else that goes along with that.
In addition, there are over 600,000 back surgeries per year. The success rate of back surgery is about 8 to 13 percent, and on average costs over $100,000.
That is crazy! Over $100,000 and the success rate is 8 to 13 percent!
Most back surgery patients are worse off because they were never told what’s causing their problem. They were never given a solution. You know what they usually get?
They get drugs. They get medications. One of the most common ones they get is opioid medications.
Now, according to research, every single day, 175 people die of opioid overdose or addiction. 115 of those people were prescribed opioids for back pain.
How Chiropractic Care Can Save Lives
So I say all the time we save lives. And sometimes people look a little bit differently at that and say:
Do you REALLY save lives? Are you even a real doctor?
When these people come in and they have problems, we find and correct their problems. We find a long-term, natural solution and they get off their drugs.
- They don’t die.
- They don’t go into surgery.
- hey’re not suffering for the rest of their life.
So if you or someone you know is suffering with back pain or other health related issues, and you’re looking for a natural, drug free solution, then call our office and make an appointment to get seen today.How Our Approach to #Chiropractic Care Saves Lives Click To Tweet
